At the Master Painters Association,
we’re proud to offer the qualified training course, Sustainable Painting Practices. Many members of the MPA have undertaken this esteemed accreditation,
and now hold the MPA exclusive title of Enviropainter®.
Enviropainters® are able to advise consumers on matters of reusable and renewable materials and practices to decrease paint and water wastage.
When you hire an Enviropainter®, you can be sure that the working practices employed will have significantly reduced impact on the environment.
Sustainable Painting Practices: Course Content
In order to gain access to the right to the title ‘Enviropainter’, trainees must complete an MPA qualified course that covers the following material:
Work safety for painters (OHS)
Waste and recycling
Identifying best practices and resources for the sustainable painting
Business relationships and networks
Responding to the consumer needs in preparation for work
Industry best-practice and continuous improvement
The course has been designed to educate and enable practitioners to conduct their work with sustainability in mind. Sustainability, roughly speaking,
refers to the idea that the way we act now must be commensurate with a world that can survive and prosper long into the future. It’s about
gaining a better understanding of how our practices influence the environment, and the sorts of measures we can take to ensure we leave a positive
impact on society and the world at large.
What is Sustainability?
Sustainability means managing our development so that we don’t limit the options of future generations. Sustainability is all about:
Doing more with less
Making sure we don’t leave the cupboard bare
Being proud of what we leave behind
Sustainability is also about a better understanding of the systems that support what we do – and the need to take a broader view to recognise that
our day to day activities can simultaneously affect our economy, environment and community.
