What accreditation do picture framers have?
Most picture framers are taught to frame on the job which gives them the opportunity to learn from more experienced framers. This on-the-job training tends to be ad hoc, with no formal structure resulting in a number gaps in the trainee’s skill set. It is also biased towards the trainer’s knowledge, background and interests. Worse still, bad habits, inefficient or out-dated processes can be passed on inadvertently.
In Australia, most framers operate independently of accredited framing organisations. Those who are members, tend to be paid members of overseas organisations such as the Professional Picture Framers Association which provide a great platform for knowledge sharing but little in the way of formal training.
