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.
