White Card

Course Objective

A White Card is a mandatory requirement for construction workers in Australia. This means that if you want to work in the construction industry, you have to have one. Even if you are only visiting Australia for a short period of time on a working holiday visa, you are not allowed to work on a construction site without a White Card.

White Card is the common name for CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry training course. Holding a valid White Card means that you have completed official, certified general construction induction training with a registered organisation within Australia.

According to National Code of Practice for Induction for Construction Work, the people who need a White Card include:

  • Construction labourers
  • Tradespeople
  • Site managers
  • Supervisors
  • Surveyors
  • People who access operational construction zones unaccompanied or unsupervised
