The world’s need to become more ‘green’ or environmentally friendly has put pressure on a lot of industry’s to refine their processes and products accordingly; the painting industry is no exception.
Following this demand there has been several training programs for painters to learn green tips for practising their day to day jobs with as minimal environmentalÂ impactÂ as possible. The premier course for painters is supplied by the Master Painters Association of Australia and is called Enviropainter. ThisÂ particularÂ training stems fromÂ overÂ 100 years of industry experience through the Master Painters Association.
Unfortunately, there has been a few companies claiming to be registered training organisation offering training to become a ‘green’ painter but in reality there is no substance behind the training, leaving unsuspecting painters in the lurch. After completing the Enviropainter course a painter isÂ accreditedÂ to call themselves a ‘green’ painter. One such company is the Enviropainter of the year, John Crawford Painting Contractors. HeÂ epitomisesÂ what itÂ trulyÂ means to be a ‘green painter‘.
There really is only one true ‘green’ painters course, Enviropainter!Â ForÂ all painting companies its a must, for all looking for a painter and in particular one that practices green painting processes, ensure they are a Master Painters member and furthermore a Enviropainter…
