  • list showing relevant employment history
  • work samples and documents (tender documents, invoices, quotations, plans, sketches etc)
  • letter of employment
  • reference letters from licensed painters you have worked with
  • photos and videos of your work
  • overseas qualifications
  • related licenses, short courses, accreditation, certificates, transcripts or assessments you have attained
  • Apprenticeship papers (if available)
  1. A qualified assessor will assess your skills and knowledge for each unit of competency.
  2. You may be asked by the assessor to perform various tasks for a practical observation at your work site.
  3. Where skills or knowledge gaps are identified, further assessment will be required.

It’s critical that your certificate is nationally recognised and you have completed the units required by your licensing body to be eligible to apply for your license.


Upon the successful completion of an RPL program through a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), the RTO will award you with a nationally recognised qualification as a Wall & Floor Tiler.
