DON’T TAKE OUR WORD
I recently undertook Master Painters Queensland’s business management course. As a tradie, I had all the skills down pat, but when it came to setting up my own business, I needed a bit of a hand. The course was exactly what I needed. It covered all the basics and was really easy to understand. Best of all, it meant I could get my QBCC licence.

I’ve been a member of Master Painters Queensland for over 10 years now. They provide some really great resources, and put on great events. I’ve even managed to win some work out of contacts that I’ve met at their events. Membership is really affordable, and definitely worth the money.

You really can’t afford not to be a member of Master Painters. So many of my clients say that the reason they choose us was because we’re Master Painters accredited. It really gives your business that competitive, professional edge. With so many dodgie operators out there, membership really does make you stand out from the crowd.

If you’re thinking about engaging a painter or decorator, then you should always ask for a copy of both their license and their Public Liability and Worker’s Compensation Insurance. If you’re having trouble finding a contractor that you trust, then contact us—we’re always happy to provide details of a local painter. With a Master Painters accredited tradesman on your job, you can rest easy.

If you’re painting or decorating a property built prior to 1970, then chances are you may disturb paint containing lead, or asbestos sheeting. If not handled safely, these materials can be hazardous to humans and animals. If in doubt, leave it up to the experts—all Master Painter accredited tradesmen are trained to safely deal with these risky building materials. Some of our members are even accredited Enviropainters®. An Enviropainter® can advise on reusable and renewable resources and materials, and environmentally-friendly paints, and minimise paint waste and water use
