  1. What is the difference between oz plastering and britian, i hear that they plaster with different materials and different ways. I think that Ireland and britian are more qualified and educated in more aspects of plastering than oz plasters who are broken into singular types of plastering. regards damien

  3. hi everyone , i wanted to ask a question on solid plastering and getting a 175 visa ,any advice would be appreciated .here goes ...... i have a city and guilds and an nvq 2 in solid plastering and believe i will need to get an AQF111 in order to get assessed with TRA ,can anybody tell me what is involved in getting the AQF 111 ? Also i am currently working as a trowel man for a spray applied concrete company as we all know the plastering and building trade is dead, do you think this will be classed as experience with the AQF/TRA as it is still a trowel occupation ? I believe the AQF assessers do site visits will this be suitable or do you think they will want to see me actually skimming /rendering? any advice from plasterers who have been through the process would be great .

    plastering in aus is a joke

    after been made out to feel like I'm not a qualified plasterer thought i would see how the Aussie's train and qualify mmmmmmmmmmmm its a joke all i can say on this matter is i have forgot more than they need to pass what they need to look at is the training needed to be classed as a plasterer in the UK no wonder the British are classed as the best trades people in the world this assessment should involve comparing our works to there's and then see if we are qualified sorry if i sound very bitter but i am spent years getting to where i am and some jumped up office kid says sorry your not good enough thanks for listening folks feel a bit better now :arghh: ps. for anyone reading this post from the body that trains apprentice plasterers, a plasterers derby is spelt derby and not darby and it was the epyptians who started the plastering and not the greeks like they state, they need to do more research.
  12. Hi there, I am planning to fly over to Perth to do the AQF 111 qualification in Solid Plastering in the next couple of weeks. Can anyone confirm that I can do this on the 3 month tourist visa? My understanding of the 3 month ETA is that you cannot engage in studies or training for longer than 3 months, as the course I will be doing is only 2 days long I pressume this will be fine but I don't want to fly over to then be told I can't do the course because I am on the wrong visa. I would really appreciate if someone could advise on this one!! Also, has anybody else done the AQF 111 solid plastering and how did you find it?
  13. Hiya, My OH is a plasterer, we got our skilled visa about 5 weeks ago but are panicking a little bit! We want to move to Perth but have read worrying threads about tradesmen coming home due to lack of work or contractors flooding sites with tradesmen to get the job done quicker resulting in shoddy work. We have a young family and obviously are concerned about the upheavel and cost involved in moving, also does any one know whether the credit crunch has hit Oz yet, we are struggling to find work over here and are concerned as to whether we could be moving out of the frying pan into the fire! Anyone please help!!!:unsure:

    Plastering work

    Hi We are in the early stages of planning our emigration to Oz, we are looking at the Gold Coast area. My husband is a plasterer of ten years and is concerned about how much work there will be for him. We have seen from other posts that there is alot of external plastering, does anyone know if the following products are used all of which he has experience using - STO render, Marmorit render, Monocouche. He is also experienced in Polished/Venetian plastering. He has not actually got any formal qualifications, does anyone know if that will be a problem when getting his trade recognised? Any information would be greatly appreciated Thanks:) Louise

  19. Hi I have a friend who may be coming over to Perth to work for a year. Can anyone help with info on plastering jobs ie is there much plastering work in Perth area? and approx. how much can he expect to earn? He has been plastering for 20 years and is a really hard worker. Work has dried up over here and he thought maybe a change for a year may give him a boost. Thanks Tina
