VIC Worksafe: “An employer must accept any of the following things as evidence that the worker has done construction induction training: a statement or card issued under similar requirements in another Australian state or territory).

TAS Workstandard: “Mutual recognition arrangements between states and territories allow construction workers to move across boundaries without the requirement of undertaking construction induction training in each jurisdiction.”

ACT Worksafe: “Construction Induction Training is a nationally accredited competency unit known as “Work safely in the construction industry”…”

QLD Worksafe: “Queensland recognises construction induction cards from all states and territories (excluding NT who do not currently have a regulatory requirement for construction induction training).”

NT Worksafe: “The Regulations require workers in the construction industry to complete general construction induction training before carrying out construction work. The approved unit of competency is CPCCOHS1001A ‘Work safely in the construction industry’. Only a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) will be able to deliver this training. It is the duty of the PCBU who is directing or allowing a worker to carry out construction work to ensure that worker has undertaken the general construction induction training prior to engaging in construction work.”

SA Safework: “The adoption of the Code essentially removes a layer of red tape in hiring construction employees in SA.

 What to do if I lost my White Card

I got a lot of emails from our website visitors asking me to reissue their White Card. Rather than repeating my answer again and again, I put the answer here. We are not White Card course provider and we don’t issue White Card. I strongly recommend you to contact your course provider to reissue the certificate. Our website has a database of most White Card course providers in Australia and you will find their contact details in the relevant provider’s review page. Also I think it is not a bad idea to take a photo of your certificate as soon as you get your certificate so at least you know who your provider is and then later on you can contact them if you lost your certificate.

How long is my White Card valid for?

Normally White Card expires in 3 years, which means you need to do another white card course to keep you license update to date. In this website, we provide list of course providers to choose. But if you don’t know which one to choose, you can contact us and tell us which state you are from, we can recommend one for you.
