What trade can be trained up in 6 months???


Think the answer is here in his previous post on the same thread:

They did not tell me they were sacking me,they just told me there was not much work.I was a licenced wall and floor tile layer 32 years.


That's a very generous offer there and if it was me in the same position - definitely be looking into it.

Yeh fair call I forgot tiling was a trade, I’d say 6 months would be way to long could be qualified in that within a week :thumbsup:

If you are mechanically minded and a person that is willing to learn,you should be able to pick up on certain trades only. Tiling,painting,plastering,concreting,and heeps more.In city apartments there are approx 10-20 square meters of tiles to lay.Straight forward stuff.An armature is not going to lay 600 by 600 marble or stone on his or her first day.They start off doing small easy jobs,and gradually move on to bigger things. Believe me when i tell you,i have seen ppl go to Bunnings,buy a few tools and claim that they are a professional tradesman,they might fxxx a few jobs along the way,but they most probable stick to simple tasks and plotter along. I will download some pix of jobs to show you what i mean. All it takes is to get a foot in the right door and you could earning 100k p.a .Some ppl are happy to be a factory worker all their lives,and that's fine as well i guess.Did you know most likely an apprentice is working on your car,and the works arn't always checked properly.I am only telling you what i have witnessed in 3 decades [don't say comments like i did not know tiling was even a trade] I supported a family without my wife working,and even changed sh---y nappies.All i am saying that you are never too old to start a new career.Take in as much as possible from your teachers ,don't say no to difficult tasks and don't complain so much.

Its only a trade if they completed an apprenticeship
Cert III floor and wall tiling.
Can only enrol once you have a training contract with employer i.e. An apprenticeship.
The watering down of trades by people claiming to be tradesman is just crap.

Totally agree with you rb85,
It's like a reflection of a lot of things these days, short attention span millennials, part time jobs, quick (government backed) training courses giving you some bull$hit degree or certification.
Ohh don't get me started.
Anyway best of luck smile0784, hopefully with some contacts, good luck and effort you fall on your feet. You never know where a new direction will lead you.

Thank's for some of the nice private messages i received ,i did not relay get my point across on what i was trying to say,it doesn't matter you would have needed to work in 2 or 3 states in Australia,to understand my point anyway.In NSW and QLD ,no trade licence and you will not be able to trade direct with domestic housing.To obtain a trade licence you need to jump over a few hoops first. Police check,apprenticeship papers,or trade certificate,also must have equity in your own home or liquid money approx 60k ,so if something should go wrong with your work at your fault the gov has money to retreive. As in VIC it does not work this way.You will not be able to renew your licence in QLD or NSW if you have a fault to your name.This is a much fairer system in my opinion[This is why i said what i said about trading in Victoria,you can bull------ your way in and have your house robbed while a so called tradesman works on your house,because he was not police checked. Enough of this crap anyway,its like i don't comment on catching Tuna,as i have no experience catching them .[but yet i have seen on this forum ppl that have never caught tuna give advice like an expert]

PS Elephant fish has been caught at Station pier in the last 3 weeks.
