Get on-site quickly with the AVELING White Card course.
AVELING has updated the White Card unit of competency to the CPCCWHS1001 – Prepare to work safely in the construction industry in our comprehensive online unit. In ACT, a person who is on a construction site must have a White Card construction induction card. This includes school students undertaking work experience on a construction site. AVELING’s Construction White Card Online Training is flexible, with course content that is fully up-to-date and covers the latest Work Health and Safety (WHS) laws.
PLEASE NOTE: AVELING will issue you with a Western Australia White Card and Statement of Attainment for CPCCWHS1001 – Prepare to work safely in the construction industry. AVELING’s WA White Card is accepted in ACT under mutual-recognition arrangements, as per the following directive from WorkSafe ACT: If a person already holds a current and valid construction induction card issued in another State or Territory, there is no need to undergo further training, nor is there a need to transfer the card to an ACT card.
