White Card Training Cairns - Blended delivery Coming soon!!


Due to changes to the White Card course by Work Place Health & Safety, we are temporarily cancelling all upcoming White Card courses.

Work Place Health and Safety (QLD) have changed the course to make it:

  • Much more difficult for people with low literacy
  • Much more time consuming for the trainer to deliver
  • Qld WHS course requirements not in-line with the national guidelines we are required to adhere to.
  • We don’t feel comfortable delivering this new courses as we feel it is setting up students to fail.

We may reinstate the course if changes are made by WHS, or we find a way to deliver it that is viable.


Sorry for any inconvenience.




Please Note: In Queensland, a Construction Induction Card, otherwise known as a White Card course must be conducted face-to-face (not online) unless you are exempt. Please see below for details.

White Card Course CairnsCPCCWHS1001 - Prepare to work safely in the construction industry

CPCWHS1001 - Prepare to work safely in the construction industry

  • This nationally recognised White Card training course gives trainees basic knowledge of:
    • construction work
    • Work Health and Safety (WH&S) laws
    • common hazards encountered in construction work
    • how associated risks can be controlled
  • Under WHS legislation, workers on construction sites must undertake general induction training or ‘White Card training’ and have evidence of their attendance from the course before they are permitted to commence work on a construction site.

Can I Do All of the White Card Course Online in QLD? Buyer Beware!

From February 2019, training for the white card must be undertaken face to face in Queensland.

If you live in Cairns and the surrounding area you will not be able to do your white card online. If you do, it may be invalid - and you still need to have your photo taken with the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) on (see photo - we supply the gear). If you don't have any, you will have to buy/borrow some, adding to the cost and time.

Our new course is blended delivery so you can save time by doing the training component online but the GCIT assessment must be completed face to face.


An exemption applies allowing candidates whose residential address is further than 100 kilometres away from the nearest RTO delivering face to face white card training, to complete the white card training via online delivery. You will still need a photo with PPE though.
