White Card Brisbane Course Details

In the construction industry, workplace safety is paramount due to the high risk of injuries, which can lead to significant health and financial costs. The White Card Course Brisbane is designed to address these challenges by providing essential safety education mandatory for all construction workers.

As a crucial requirement for anyone looking to work within the construction sector in Brisbane, this course offers foundational WHS knowledge necessary to safely begin work on any construction site. As part of this training, participants will need to demonstrate their understanding of the Work Health & Safety (WHS) legal frameworks.

Guided by expert trainers, you will learn to identify construction hazards, effectively use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and apply basic risk management principles to safeguard against injuries and illnesses. The course blends theoretical lessons with practical exercises and thorough assessments to equip you with the skills needed for a safe construction career.

Training Program

  • Training must be conducted over a minimum period of 6hrs not including breaks.
  • A Statement of Training (SOT) must be issued to students if they satisfactorily complete all assessments, demonstrating competency in the program.
  • Due to White Card being a Government Initiative, students will have to complete ALL training hours required. Insufficient ID and being late will automatically deem the student ineligible to start the course on that date. Students will need to contact our office to rebook, paying 50% of the course cost, if this is the case.

White Card Brisbane Assessment

Within the 7 hours of the accredited course, students will receive lunch breaks (lunch not provided) and will sit multiple choice and short answer assessments throughout the day. Students are offered multiple opportunities to demonstrate their knowledge and skills throughout the course to deem them competency across the unit.

There are 3 components to this White Card program:

  • Theoretical training in the classroom
  • Practical training in the classroom
  • Assessment for both knowledge and skills

This White Card QLD course combines plain English, videos, photos, and questioning to ensure all learners can have the best possible chance at comprehending the required knowledge and skills.

Assessments MUST be completed in English and with no further assistance. If you believe you will need assistance due to your Language, Literacy or Numeracy skills, please contact our office on 02 9232 1010 to discuss your training needs.

If a student is not successful in completing all assessments satisfactorily, they will need to rebook the White Card QLD course at a $50 NYC Fee.

White Card Brisbane Certification

Once student is deemed competent, learners will be issued a SOT (Statement of Training) which will be valid for 60 days after issued. With this certificate, students can go onto any construction site immediately after the course. SafeWork QLD will post the final White Card to the students address, this normally can take up to 60 days.

Students will be issued with a Statement of Attainment for:

  • CPCWHS1001 Work safely in the construction industry (formerly CPCCWHS1001)

For any lost, stolen or replacement White Cards, please contact SafeWork QLD on 131 050.

What if my Card is lost, damaged or destroyed?

If you need to replace your general construction induction training (GCIT) card (previously known as a white card), you will need to contact the registered training organisation (RTO) that issued your original card. Remember you’ll need a new card if you haven’t carried out construction work in the last two years.

You will need to provide the RTO with a statement of attainment for CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry, or the earlier course CPCCOHS1001A Work safely in the construction industry. A declaration stating how the card was lost, stolen or destroyed will also need to be supplied. Once you've successfully completed this unit, the RTO will issue you with your new general construction induction training card.

Visit Worksafe QLD for more information.

Can I use this qualification is other states?

As of the 1st of September 2012, the General Induction Card is recognised nationally.

What is the difference between the "Green Card" and "White Card"?

Previously, participants who completed the WHS Induction course were issued with a “green card”. With legislation changes, participants are now issued with a “white card”.

How long is the White Card valid for?

This card does not expire, however if you have not worked on a construction for 2 years or more, SafeWork QLD recommends attending a course to update your skills and knowledge.

Do I need to bring PPE?

No, you are not required to bring any PPE, only yourself and your ID.
