I am looking at gettng my licience as soon as possible I have several references & customer testimonials.

    Email/PM me & hubby will reply, he has had no problem with working for a company based in the city. I am sure he will be able to give you help & advise.

    Have a safe journey.

    We are looking at coming to south australia - does a painter and decorator have to obtain a licence if coming on a PR? we thought this was just for plumbers etc

    Hi,

    it does not matter what type of visa you are on, a licence is required if you want to work for your self either as a company or just as a self employed person, you can work for somone else with out a licence though.:)

    All plumbing jobs advertised ask for Licensed/Registered plumbers only.

    Hubby is a P&D & no license is required as he is a direct employee, however, Master Builders have confirmed sub contract workers & if you are self employed should have a license, the fine is $20k. License around $430 approx with TAFE.

    Hi Angela,

     

    Thanx for your response. Are you enjoying it in Adelaide? Has yr hubby found it easy to get employment? Ant has been a painter and decorator for nearly 11 years and would prefer to work for a company until we find our feet etc.
