In partnership with The Frontline Group (International) Pty Ltd (Frontline), the Blinds Manufacturers’ Association of Australia (BMAA) have developed a comprehensive 5 Year Industry Training Plan. A critical component of this plan is the skilling of the workforce via the Certificate III in Blinds, Awnings, Security Screens and Grilles which provides an opportunity for businesses within the industry interested in developing their people.

About This Course
Learn key skills that you’ll use and grow throughout your career. Graduate with the knowledge and confidence to make, sell or install window and door furnishing products to a high standard.

Course Outcomes

  • Work while you learn and gain practical experience and develop specialist skills that give you an advantage in your workplace.
  • On successful completion, be awarded a nationally accredited qualification at Certificate III level. 

Is This Course Right For Me?
If you are a new worker, or an existing worker, we have a training program that will suit you. We need to make sure your supervisor is on board with you training, because you will need to be trained and assessed at work.

What Will I Learn?
Courses are made up of a combination of both core and elective (specialty) units. In the MSF30919 Certificate III in Blinds, Awnings, Security Screens and Grilles, you’ll need to successfully complete 18 units of competency, including 5 core and 18 elective units. The core units (that everyone studies and form a solid foundation for working effectively in the industry) include the following skills:

  • Products
  • Communication and teamwork
  • Estimating
  • Safety
  • Following work instructions

Speciality areas of study include:

  • manufacturing (fabrication and assembly)
  • installation
  • sales and service (estimating and detailing).

We will work with you and your manager to develop a program that teaches you skills you need for your current role as well as skills you will need to progress your career in the industry.

How Will I Learn?
Your trainer will visit you at work and coach you on new skills, while recognising your existing skills. They will ask you questions, discuss your work and observe you doing jobs you do every day. They will demonstrate new skills and give you an opportunity to practice them.

They will keep your supervisor updated with your progress and training focus between visits. If there are other people at your work doing this course, your trainer will schedule workshops to bring you in together, but if it’s just you, they will work with you 1:1.

How Long Will It Take?
The course can take anywhere from 1-4 years depending on the pathway you follow. People with lots of industry experience can finish their course faster than people who need more learning and coaching. A training consultant can discuss your experience and needs with you and your manager to help you work out a program that fits you.
