This qualification reflects the role of a picture framer. Picture framers usually work in small retail outlets, which provide framing services to the general public. However, they may also undertake framing for businesses and specialise in particular types of framing.
Picture framers assess framing design requirements and use a range of technical skills to create artwork packages of varying complexity. In the first instance, they assess framing requirements from both a technical and design perspectives. Picture framers then use discretion and judgment and specialised knowledge and skills to select and use equipment and materials to achieve the desired framing effects.
There are no specific licences that relate to this qualification. However, depending on the jurisdiction, licensing or regulatory requirements may apply to the use of some units in this qualification. Local regulations should be checked for details.
