Modification History

Release 2

This version first released with CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package Release 6.4.

Correction to Training Package title in the Modification History from CPC Property Services to CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package.

Release 1

This version first released with CPC Property Services Training Package Release 5.0.

Supersedes and is equivalent to CPCCPD3024A Apply paint by spray. Updated to meet the Standards for Training Packages 2012.

Application

This unit of competency specifies the skills and knowledge required to apply paint by spray onto different surfaces to form a protective paint finish.

The unit includes preparation of materials and application area, setting up and testing of the spray equipment, application of paint and completion of clean-up activities.

A person who has achieved this unit of competency would be expected to take responsibility for organising and completing these tasks with a high degree of self-direction.

Completion of the general construction induction training program specified by the model Code of Practice for Construction Work is required for any person who is to carry out construction work.  Achievement of CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this requirement.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

Pre-requisite Unit

CPCCWHS2001

Apply WHS requirements, policies and procedures in the construction industry
