Why Finishing Trades
A building isn't complete until all the finishing touches have been taken care of. Finishing tradespeople are the people who do just that - they finish the job!
Finishing trades (also known as allied trades) include:
- Painting and Decorating
- Glass and Glazing
- Flooring Technology
These are important skills, and quality tradespeople are always in demand in Tasmania.
Qualified tradespeople in the finishing trades are able to take their skills across Australia and around the world!
In Tasmania, once you've gained an apprenticeship in one of the finishing trades, you will do training "blocks" through TasTafe through the life of your apprenticeship.
Many finishing tradespeople work in small businesses. Becoming your own boss is something you can really achieve in these trades.
There is also the opportunity to take your studies further and become a construction manager or project manager.
