Painters put the finishing touch on all construction projects. They prepare all types of surfaces; prepare coatings for application; and apply paints, stains, clear finishes and wall coverings. They also sandblast and waterblast. Apprentices receive three years of training in painting, drywall taping, wallpapering, sandblasting, safety and decorating. Most of the training is conducted on the job, but apprentices attend classroom training, too.
