    Question Fibrous plasterer,solid plasterer or Gyprocker?


    Hi!I just need help in my questions.Maybe somebody can explain me-how is correct called tape and jointer in Oz .Because based on information I've found in the web,Fibrous plasterer- is like UK's fixer and jointer in one (http://www.migrationexpert.com/austr..._australia.asp ) , solid plasterer -is like UK's plasterer (http://www.migrationexpert.com/austr..._australia.asp ) ,gyprocker -is like T.and J.,but I've found no official information regarding this occupation.
    So maybe there's no similar occupation,because it looks like there is no fixers and jointers separately,but one occupation include everything,and taper-and-jointers must to do and fixer's job as well?

    I thought it was a gyprocker. See this link for more information.
    I think we have a member who worked in Oz, maybe he can elaborate more?

    Hi

    Having done a few ''Flushing'' jobs as the locals liked to call it, I found that the crew I was with had the skills to

    complete a job from stud work to coving single handed, But most guys stuck with either a wet or dry trade,


    I prefer to joint so I was the FLUSHER,


    We had a contract around Brisbane fitting out old peoples homes & were calling out for DECENT RELIABLE workers.

    Thanks for answers,but it looks like no chance to pass the skills assessment if you are only taper-and-jointer.
