52824WA Certificate II in Building and Construction (Pathway - Trades) (Solid Plastering Pre-Apprenticeship)

National ID: 52824WA | State ID: AB26

Do you want a career in a trade that has everything covered?

Many trades in the building industry revolve around structural work that is essential but largely out of sight. But as a so-called finishing trade, a plasterer’s work is on display for everyone to see.

A plasterer’s task is to cover surfaces such as:

  • Brick 
  • block 
  • concrete 
  • timber and
  • metal

They cover these surfaces prior to painting to make interiors and exteriors aesthetically pleasing.

Lower fees, local skillsThis qualification is directly aligned with priority industry areas where the jobs are today, and into the future. As part of the state government Lower fees, local skills initiative, from 1 July 2020 through to 31 December 2021 you'll only pay half the course fees, capped at $1,200; or $400 if you're aged 15—24 or eligible for a concession.

Study pathway

Pre-apprentice graduates will need to be indentured by an employer before they continue training as an apprentice, however graduates have an improved chance of gaining an apprenticeship as they have already completed the equivalent of stage one of the apprenticeship’s off-the-job training component.
