Goals / field of competence The Federal Association of the Painting, Plastering and Wallpapering Trade (hereinafter referred to as SZMTOI) has set itself the goal of investigating the most common pricing methods in the painting trade, with the involvement of contractors and education experts, and of shifting standard price calculation in the direction of itemized/detailed pricing.
Training tasks Description of detailed goals / content (fine goals). Learning outcomes according to PSA qualification portfolio:

During training, painters learn the norms regarding working time, materials, machine use and other costs (overheads). The vast majority of contractors use unit prices for pricing (xx /sqm). It is often difficult to determine operational overhead and profit. Calculating with the overhead rate makes the calculation easier. Participants will learn about a program for detailed budgeting in the construction industry that calculates the cost of work based on standards set by regulations. This program and these standards are used in the design phase when the preliminary cost of the project (building) is calculated. Those who master the program can apply it to all specialized works in the construction industry.
