Course Code: CPCCWHS1001 – Prepare to work safely in the construction industry.
If you’re looking for white card courses in Melbourne, we can help. Construction induction training, also known as a white card course, is a mandatory health and safety requirement for everyone who works in the construction industry. This includes any workers who are involved in residential or commercial renovations, repairs, maintenance, demolitions or alterations. Site managers and supervisors who routinely enter constriction areas are also required to have construction induction training.
Other relevant fields include:
- Roof, floor and wall tiling
- Electrical work
Employers in the construction industry are legally required to check if all of their workers hold a valid Victorian white card. This shows that they have completed the necessary training with a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) accredited by WorkSafe Victoria.
The Victorian white card is nationally recognised and can be used to work in other Australian states and territories.
White card training is a one-day course that prepares you to work safely within a construction setting.
After completing this course, you will be able to:
- Identify health and safety hazards in the workplace
- Apply control measures to reduce workplace health and safety risks
- Have a solid understanding of occupational health and safety (OHS) obligations
- Understand OHS emergency procedures
At the end of the course, you will receive a Statement of Attainment as well as a construction induction card provided by WorkSafe Victoria.

- As per WorkSafe Victoria, participants must have a basic understanding of the English language.
