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. Under WHS legislation in South Australia, anyone involved in construction work must complete general construction induction training for construction work (and hold a White Card). A PCBU is not permitted to allow workers to carry out construction work unless the worker has completed general induction training for construction work.
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. Our course is accepted in South Australia under mutual acceptance agreements – construction workers can work in SA using valid construction induction cards issued by all states and territories. Take a look at Safe Work SA for more information.

In cases where participants are from a non-English speaking background and/or have difficulty in communicating in English, AVELING may engage the services of external providers for translation and interpretation services. Where this is required, additional fees will apply from $55 + GST for up to 30 minutes with an interpreter. Higher fees will apply if more than 30 minutes is required.
Participants must successfully complete AVELING’s assurance audit and verbal assessment within 12 months from course enrolment.
