MPA Skills’ full-time painting pre-apprenticeship is perfect for school leavers and career changers. A pre-apprenticeship is the first step to getting an apprenticeship. The course includes classroom learning and on-the-job training allowing you to gain insights into the construction industry. The best part about the painting pre-apprenticeship is that many of the units are transferable to a number of other construction trades.
11 weeks full time training including four weeks of work experience under a host employer tailored to you.
