CPCCWHS1001 - Prepare to work safely in the construction industry

All States Training is able to come to you for these courses.

We are flexible and mobile to meet your training needs.


Course Overview

The white card construction induction training course is designed to train participants in how to carry out tasks safely whilst working the in the construction industry.

The course teaches students personal awareness of occupational health and safety legislative requirements, and the basic principles of risk management and prevention of injury and illness in the construction industry.  This unit relates directly to the general induction training program specified by the National Code of Practice for Induction for Construction Work (ASCC 2007).  

This is an induction program designed to provide new and existing building and construction industry participants with introductory knowledge and understanding necessary to commence or continue work in the building and construction industry, whether it be for work, deliveries, or other business.

State Recognition and Currency

In 2019, state regulators made changes to the way the Whitecard program is to be delivered in Australia. In Queensland, obtaining a Whitecard via online training is no longer permitted, and the course must be undertaken face-to-face in the classroom (certain exemptions for rural residents may apply).

White cards issued by All States Training are accepted in all states and territories in Australia.

 This course must be completed BEFORE entering a building and construction work site.
