To work on a construction site in Australia it is compulsory for everyone to hold a 'White Card'. The white card is a requirement under OH&S Codes of Practice across most jurisdictions. It allows individuals to access or be present on construction sites.
Our online white card course allows you to complete this course without the traditional face to face training. New regulations now only allow residents of Queensland and Western Australia to complete this course online. All other areas of Australia must attend a face to face course in that State or Territory. Queensland students will only be able to complete this online training if they are unable to find a face to face course within 100 kilometers from their address.
The White Card itself is a credit card sized card, and is gained by completing a face-to-face or online White Card course, typically taking around 6 hours, including assessment, officially known as the 'CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry' course. Students who reside in Queensland and Western Australia, who successfully complete this nationally recognised training, will be awarded the statement of attainment for CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry and either the Queensland or Western Australia white card the same day.
This online white card course is designed to meet WHS/OHS regulatory authority requirements for WHS/OHS induction and must be achieved before access to any building and construction work site. The target group for this online white card course will be people requiring training to safely work on building and construction sites.
It is a Training Package requirement that a live interview be conducted and and that each student must be able to demonstrate certain items of personal protective equipment. All Registered Training Organisations must follow these requirements for this course. Our white card course allows you to complete this live interview online. The types of PPE required are fully listed in the course and you will be able to use equipment you already own, equipment borrowed, equipment purchased from any hardware store or we offer equipment that you will be able to purchase through the course.
