Training with MPA

Training Grant

Thought about a career in the painting industry? MPA Training can help you get there! See below how MPA can assist with potential funding options to help you access training without being out of pocket*.

Master Painters Association Queensland in conjunction with our sponsors will provide a Paint Industry Training Grant for students undertaking training. This fund recognises the need to invest in, and support industry skills and training, and at the same time, help ease the financial pressure on students to meet the financial commitment associated with training. We thank the paint manufacturers, industry service providers, sundry suppliers and MPA members our sponsors, for their ongoing financial support in providing this grant. Grants are limited and will be provided in full or portioned up to $2000.00.

Making an Application

Any person who meets the training fund eligibility criteria, can apply for the MPA Training Grant. We recommend that applications are made prior to commencement of any training so you will know how much you will be provided before you commit to the training. Students enrolling or already enrolled in a CERTIFICATE III apprenticeship course are eligible to apply for a funding grant. Applications must be made and submitted online via (Training Grants Apply Here)
