White Card Sydney Course Details

Statistics show that in 2019 an average of 183 workers were fatally injured as a result of accidents in the workplace in Australia. The White Card Course Sydney is designed to raise awareness and help implement strategies and practices to eliminate these risks that cause injuries and fatalities in the workplace.

The White Card Course is a requirement to work in the Construction Industry in Sydney and covers the basic WHS knowledge required prior to commence work tasks within any of the building sectors. This course requires the ability to demonstrate personal awareness of Work Health & Safety (WHS) legislative requirements.

With our highly experienced trainers you will learn how to identify and report construction hazards, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) use, as well as the basic principals of risk management and prevention of injury and illness. With theoretical, practical and assessment components students will acquire all relevant knowledge and skills to assist them in the construction industry.

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 Sydney 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 Sydney 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 Sydney course at a $50 NYC Fee.

White Card Sydney 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 NSW 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)

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 NSW recommends attending a course to update your skills and knowledge.
