Learn the art of painting and decorating and the techniques you will need to pursue a successful career as a Painter and Decorator. Painters and decorators try to arrange their work so they will be outdoors in late spring, summer and early fall, and indoors in the late fall and winter. Painters and decorators may be required to lift equipment and supplies up to 25 kilograms.
Apprentices may be eligible for financial support.
