CAA NVQ Diploma Level 2 - Painting & Decorating

(Cskills Awards L2 NVQ Diploma in Decorative Finishing & Industrial Painting Occupations (Construction) – Painter)
Course overview
This course represents a level that a potential painting & decorating professional could achieve. The Construction Awards Alliance (CAA) NVQ Diploma in painting and decorating is the advanced level course designed to develop the skills and knowledge of literally anyone, enabling them to train from zero knowledge up to working in the industry in their chosen craft of Painting & Decorating and ultimately qualifying them fully to work onsite, after the course.

All the units of training must be completed by each learner and you will be guided and trained throughout this process by our experienced trainers. After the initial training gained at our centre you will then be assessed in the workplace by one of our Assessors. To gain the full NVQ diploma, learners must achieve all units, the final practical assignment, pass the multiple online tests and achieve the onsite assessment requirements.

What this course will do with regards to all of this, is equip all course participants with the vital skills and knowledge to produce a professional finish in all scenarios resulting in the award of a NVQ Diploma high level qualification. This is an advanced course but it is designed for anyone; novices and experienced personnel wanting to gain their NVQ.
Who is this qualification for?
There are no formal entry requirements for the diploma anyone can enrol and complete this course. All potential candidates have the opportunity to attend and successfully gain the full NVQ Diploma qualification.

Although the Construction Awards Alliance (CAA) do not state that there is a need for any formal entry requirements, this course is not suitable for those who wish to improve their DIY or property development skills.

It is also intended for those working with Painting & Decorating contracting companies who have responsibility for their staff to be qualified. The CAA have designed this course so that it caters for all learners, whatever their background and inexperience.

Progress routes
After this course some students decide to go further and undertake other courses to broaden their scope of work. We recommend that completing a second course such as a tiling course as a complete package ensures that you as a student have the practical experience as well as theoretical knowledge of your work. This provides students who successfully complete both courses with a good grounding and the ability to carry out many tasks and increase their scope of work
  • CAA Diploma in Tiling
  • City & Guilds Tiling Course
  • DIY and Home Improvement Tiling Course
Our Painting & Decorating courses provide this clear progression route, helping learners to achieve the career goals they aspire to. With these skills and qualifications you can progress to a higher level of work during your career and you can for example, move on to work in the Building Services Industry further down the line. This helps those who wish, to progress from skilled occupations into technical, supervisory or managerial posts
