White Card Courses Sydney & Melbourne
According to Safe Work Australia, the construction industry is one of the highest-risk industries in Australia, accounting for 4.4% of the workforce but 10% of worker fatalities.
Completing a White Card course is a legal requirement for anyone who wants to work in the construction industry in Australia, as it provides essential knowledge and skills related to occupational health and safety (OHS) on construction sites.
In addition to being a legal requirement, completing a White Card course can also help prevent accidents and injuries on construction sites, which can have significant financial and human costs for workers and their families. By equipping workers with a strong foundation in OHS principles, a White Card course can help promote a safer and more productive work environment in the construction industry.

General Course FAQs
- When is my booking confirmed?
Your booking is confirmed once we receive full payment of course fees. Unfortunately there are rare occasions where the course will sell out prior to you finalising payment. In this situation a member of our customer service team will get in contact to organise an alternate training date.
- What are your payment methods?
Payment can be made at the time of booking using either a credit card, EFTPOS or cash. Invoices and acceptance of company cheques is by prior arrangement only.
- Can I pay my package in installments?
Unfortunately we cannot offer this service, full payment of course fees are required at the time of booking. The good news is that we try to always offer value for money and keep course fees affordable, so you know that you are always getting good value, especially with our package deals which offer reduced prices!
- I want to book in multiple staff and/or want a company invoice?
We can book multiple people at once and create company invoices, even for individual students. Please just email our bookings team – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please include the following information; the course, location and date you wish to enroll them in, full names and unique emails of those who will attend and the company's legal name, address, ABN and contact.
- What if I have trouble with written/spoken english?
Most courses will permit a student to bring a friend to interpret for them during training. If you do need assistance, we ask that you contact first before booking your course so we can advise if there are any restrictions. For example, Forklift training requires students to complete all assessments in English.
If the course permits, you may bring a friend along to the course or, alternatively, you can phone the National Translation service to book an interpreter. Visit the Immigration website for more information about help with translating.
