Victorian White Card accredited by WorkSafe VictoriaClick on the below button to reserve a place.
You will require it if you are working or intend to work in commercial or domestic construction, painting, carpentry, bricklaying, concreting, tiling, plumbing, electrical and other similar trades.
You will not be allowed to work on a site without a White Card.
Completing a White Card increases your ability to acquire work in the construction industry. Employers employ those that have White Card accreditation.
If you are completing the work yourself, your site won’t be considered a workplace, however if you are going to engage or oversee any contractors (e.g. a plumber or tiler) who will enter the site to do some work, it will be classed as a workplace and you will need a Victorian White Card.
Do this now as the courses fill up quickly.
Payment of $165 is made by credit card on the day of the course.

A General Construction Induction (White Card) course needs to be successfully completed by anyone working in construction in Australia. The maximum penalty for not having your White Card is $3,000 or 30 penalty units and for permitting a person to work at a construction site without a White Card the maximum penalty is $11,000. A Nationally Recognised White Card is issued to any person who successfully completes the unit of competency – CPCCOHS1001A Work Safely in the Construction Industry.
Our course will provide you with an awareness of construction hazards and control measures, help you to interpret and apply safety information, it will give you an understanding of your roles and responsibilities in the workplace, teach you safe work practices and provide you with information on how to respond to incidents and emergencies.
Everyone that does construction work in Australia must have successfully completed an induction course before they start work in any construction activity. This can include but is not limited to the self employed persons, apprentices, trades persons, labourers and anyone else working on a construction site.
The General Construction Induction course has a nominal duration of 6 hours for face to face delivery. Because this is an online course the length of time may vary depending on your skill level, your previous experience within the construction industry and your level of computer literacy.

To work on a construction site in Australia, it is compulsory to have completed a White Card course and hold a current Occupational/Workplace Health & Safety Certificate. The White Card is a requirement under WH&S Codes of Practice across most jurisdictions and allows individuals to access or be present on construction sites.
People across construction sites who need to have a ‘CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry’ white card include but are not limited to:
• Workers and persons who enter operational construction zones/sites
To put it simply, if you work in, or plan to gain employment in, any role where you will be required to access any construction sites across Australia, you will need to hold a white card.
All Australian States and Territories accept that the National Standard White Card Induction
CPCCWHS1001 – Prepare to work safely in the construction industry, is the requirement to
work on a construction site.
All of these cards are mutually recognised across State and Territory borders – i.e. if you have a
card issued in one location it is recognised in all other States and Territories.
Mutual recognition arrangements enhance the capacity of construction workers to move across
State/Territory boundaries without the requirement to undertake construction induction training
in each jurisdiction.
This means your online white card would be accepted wherever you work in Australia
