In order to work on a construction site anywhere in Australia it is mandatory to hold a White Card, or the previous equivalent relevant in each State. For example, previously, Queensland had the Blue Card, Victoria had the Red Card, and NSW had the Green Card.
These are still valid, if you hold one of these, but you can no longer do courses to get a Blue, Red, or Green Card. They have all been replaced by the White Card.
The official name of the course is CPCCOHS1001A Work Safely In The Construction Industry and essentially this course provides training in the basic principles of engaging in "safe Work Practices" for the construction industry.
Safe Work Practices:
The official Unit of Competency describes "Safe Work Practices" as follows:
"Safe Work Practices" include:
The government training website https://www.training.gov.au broadly outlines the purpose of the course as follows:
This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to undertake Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) induction training within the construction industry.
It requires the ability to demonstrate personal awareness of OHS legislative requirements, and the basic principles of risk management and prevention of injury and illness in the construction industry.
This unit of competency supports the attainment of the basic OHS knowledge required prior to undertaking designated work tasks within any of the sectors within the construction industry. The unit relates directly to the general induction training program specified by the National Code of Practice for Induction for Construction Work (ASCC 2007).
The short answer to this question is "anyone who goes onto a construction site". NSW Workcover provide the following list:
The White Card course is provided by a large range of Registered Training Organisations (RTO's) around the country. These RTO's are governed by several Authorities and sets of Legislation and Laws. First is "ASQA" – the Australian Skills Quality Authority. ASQA governs the standards of training provided by RTO's across Australia. ASQA perform regular audits on RTO's to ensure they are delivering training to the required standard, which includes adhering to the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).
Secondly, RTO's are licensed to deliver physical White Cards through State based Workplace Health and Safety Authorities. For instance, in NSW this would be NSW WorkCover, and in Queensland it is WorkCover Queensland.
Different States have different approaches to White Card courses. For instance, in NSW, WorkCover only offer face to face courses, however in Queensland and WA, their respective WHS authorities offer online courses.
In the case of the White Card Online Express course, it is delivered by Urban E-Learning Pty Ltd, RTO number 31973. Urban E-Learning has been in business since 2006, and has been an RTO since 2009. We are based in Spring Hill in Brisbane, and you can see pictures of our office higher up on this page.
Since the introduction of online White Card course delivery, it's estimated that somewhere in the vicinity of 90% of all White Cards are delivered through a course delivered online. This is because of the significantly better convenience of this format.
Face to face delivery in a classroom is still offered by many providers in all States, and this format typically takes up the better part of a day away from work, plus travel, parking etc. The face to face modality can still suit some learners better, especially those who may require one-to-one assistance from a physical on-site trainer.
The course covers topics categorised into four basic sections:

The Online White Card course can be studied from home any time 24/7. After you've registered and taken care of payment, you can start listening to the course content. It's important to pay close attention to the actual course content, because there are assessments that you will have to complete. The assessment includes selecting answers to questions presented through the online course, also typing in written answers in your own words to questions, and thirdly, you will be required to complete a short verbal assessment with one of our Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE) qualified and industry specific experienced trainer/assessors. To do this you can call our office number during Queensland business hours. If our assessors are busy, we will call you back as quickly as we can, so be sure to leave a message.
Once you've completed the assessments, your responses will all be recorded through our "learning management system" we call our "eHub". Once your assessments have all been approved, you will need to sort out some paperwork requirements. You'll need to fill in, and sign off our Declaration Form. You'll also need to get a Certified Copy of a suitable piece of Identification Documentation, so that we can verify your ID. There is a full Checklist of all these requirements here.
One you have these documents sorted, you can either upload them through our eHub, or you can post them to us. We check the ID documents, and make sure everything matches up. Once that's done, we process your Statement of Attainment, which will be available to you through the eHub, and then we process your White Card.
This typically takes a couple of days. However, you will probably want to upgrade to our Express Delivery option (which you can choose when you check-out through our shopping cart). This means we fast-track the processing of your White Card internally, AND we use an Express Post envelope to send your White Card out. This is the fastest option.
White Card Online Express prides itself on providing high quality, friendly support, through our customer service centre, based here in Brisbane, with real, Australian support personnel. Our support team is available between 8am to 5pm AEST (QLD time zone)
You can contact our support through our online helpdesk, or via Live Chat, or by calling our number: 1300 362 226
You will need a PC or Mac computer, with either speakers or earphones/earpiece. Your internet connection will need to preferably be ADSL2 standard, and we recommend that you complete the course through Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. If you do not already have this on your computer, this can be downloaded from http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ and https://www.google.com/chrome/
We STRONGLY recommend you do NOT do the course using the Internet Explorer (IE) browser.
We have a comprehensive Troubleshooting page for your technical requirements here.
You will also need a printer so you can print out your documentation to fill out, get signed and submit to us. If you wish to submit these documents through our eHub, it is handy to have a scanner, although you could also take a picture of it with a SmartPhone, or tablet like an iPad.
