Plasterers work in a variety of construction sites. Many plasterers specialize but a fully qualified plasterer has the skills to work in domestic construction like houses or might work on high rise buildings working with metal framing and ceiling materials to build the walls and ceilings.
Firstly, you will need to do some work experience so that you know what the job is about. If you think it’s for you, find an employer that is looking for an apprentice plasterer. You will then become an apprentice plasterer and will you will complete a certificate III in wall and ceiling lining at a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).
Once you have completed the four year apprenticeship, you will be a qualified tradie!
Once you are a tradie in the construction industry, you can continue working for small or large companies and move into leading hand, supervising or management positions. You might even want to start your own business and employ apprentices yourself. Some tradies even go on to further education to complete courses from Certificate IV to bachelor level. There are plenty of options for qualified plasterers.
