What is a White Card?
The white card course gives participants general safety knowledge in a construction context. Sometimes referred to as a general construction induction card, it is given to people once they have completed appropriate training through a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). Note: Once you have completed the course it is not necessary to renew your white card, unless, you lose the card, have not worked in the construction industry for 2 years or more, or, there is a legislative requirement to do so.
Who needs one?
The course is aimed at any person who intends to perform construction work. This includes general labourers, all the way up to supervisors and project managers. The course is recognised nationally and the physical white card that participants receive at the successful completion of the course is recognised in every Australian State and Territory.
On successful completion of the course a Statement of Attainment will be issued to the participant, in addition to a physical White Card which must be signed by the participant.
