Important Queensland White Card Changes
We have been advised by Workplace Health and Safety Queensland (WHSQ) that, following an industry review, they will no longer allow Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) to issue Queensland White Cards for online training from February 2019.
This means that in order to receive a Queensland White Card after 31 January 2019, everyone will need to attend a face-to-face training session in a Queensland location. *
What does this mean for you?
If you currently reside in any state or territory other than Western Australia (inc. outside Australia), you will be issued with a Queensland White Card if you complete all of your assessments and the required documentation before 5pm AEST on the 29th January 2019.
If you specifically wish to receive a Queensland White Card, you MUST complete all of your assessments and the required documentation before 5pm AEST on the 29th January 2019.
If you do not complete all course and assessment requirements before 5pm AEST 29th January 2019, we will issue you with a Western Australian White Card upon finalisation of your course.
Western Australian White Cards are recognised in all Australian States and Territories and you do not need to live in WA to receive one.
If you currently reside in Western Australia, the upcoming changes will not affect you as you will be automatically issued with a WA white card. The changes affect Queensland White Cards only.
* You may be able to complete training online if you live over 100km from the nearest available training centre. Please contact us for more information about remote areas online delivery approval.
