White Card Training – Why Face-To-Face Is The Only Way To Go

In the hazardous and high-risk industry of construction, white card training is a mandatory requirement. And while there are many online courses available, white card delivery must be done face-to-face. For example, online white card training in NSW is banned. So it’s imperative for anyone who works in the construction sector to have the correct training under Australian OHS law.

Elevated Training offers face-to-face course training developed by specialist teachers in conjunction with employers, industry representatives and unions to ensure all aspects of health and safety are covered. As a registered training organisation (RTO), Elevated Training, can assist site managers, supervisors, surveyors, tradespeople and apprentices who are employed in operational construction zones to obtain a General Construction Induction white card.

Complete your white card induction with Elevated Training at one of their three sites located at Brendale, Meadowbank and Burleigh or choose to have a representative visit your workplace. The training can usually be completed within six hours with the course outline identifying workplace health and safety (WHS) legislative requirements, construction hazards and control measures, WHS communication and reporting processes and WHS incident and emergency response procedures. ID requirements of 100 points must be met beforehand.

Upon successful completion of the course, applicants will receive a WorkCover Statement of Training, WHS Induction Construction pocket-sized card from WorkCover and a statement of attainment.

It can take up to 30 days for your white card to be issued in the post but the good news is, it doesn’t have an expiration date. It’s important to remember however, that if there’s a lapse in your working career of two years or more, you’ll need to reapply for the training. The white card will provide you with instant certification and a unique card number that can be referenced when applying for work or for self-employment.

To make sure you and your workers have white cards that meet the industry standards, book a face-to-face session with registered training organisation, Elevated Training today! Call (07) 5524 5925 now!
