What is a White Card?
- A White Card is evidence that you have completed a General Construction Induction course/White Card course. This course is mandatory for anyone who works, or wants to work, in the construction industry.
The Worksafe WA Website states: “Construction Induction Training cards (CIT) are supplied to an RTO on the condition that the CIT cards are only issued to candidates who provide evidence that they are located in Western Australia at the time of the assessment for the General Construction Induction course/White Card course.
Evidence can include:
- Current Western Australian Driver’s Licence; or
- Current Western Australian learner driver’s permit; or
- Current Western Australian Student Identification; or
- Recent utilities invoice with a Western Australia address and the name of the person to whom the CIT card will be issued; or
- Western Australian Construction Industry Training Fund payment eligibility; or
- Western Australian postal address to which the CIT card is to be posted.”
Is my WA White Card recognised in other States and Territories?
- YES – The Worksafe WA Website states: “In 2009 WorkSafe changed the design of construction induction cards from ‘blue’ to ‘white’ as a result of harmonisation of training across all States and Territories. Across all States and Territories, including here in WA, both the ‘blue’ and ‘white’ types of cards are accepted by the regulatory authority as evidence that induction training has been completed.”
The White Card we issue?
- Upon successful completion, you will receive a WA White Card and a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment.
Is the practical demonstration necessary?
