White Card Course Sydney

CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to Work Safely in the Construction Industry

Industry requires that all workers must have a Construction Induction card (White Card) to allow them access to construction sites. To get this qualification, you must attend a Construction Induction training course, commonly known in NSW as a White Card training. In other States, the construction industry has their own terminology for this training (Victoria Red Card; Queensland Blue Card, etc.). Prepare to Work Safely in the Construction Industry (CPCCWHS1001) is a Nationally Recognised Unit of Competency.

This SafeWork NSW accredited course is delivered face-to-face at our Penrith training facility. Facilitation of this course can be arranged at client business premises, pending minimum booking numbers.
