How to Get a White Card
Here’s how to get a White Card, the simplest and quickest way, through online training.
Although there are 2 ways to get a White Card, through traditional face-to-face or online training, the latter has become the most popular option because it is more convenient and affordable.
For a White Card without the hassle of face-to-face training, you can simply register and complete the course online.
