Due to the number of fatalities in the Construction Industry, the government decided that all persons working on a construction site must complete General Induction Training, commonly known as a White Card Course.
The White Card NSW Course will cover best practices to be followed in the construction site to reduce or eliminate risks, including basic health and safety required before starting work on a construction site.
This White Card Course is delivered by TCP Training.
If organising group training or onsite training, we can facilitate White Card training nationally.
TCP Training is not registered with CRICOS, as such we are unable to conduct training and assessment for those with study restrictions on their visa. This includes but is not limited to the International Student Visa (subclass 500), you can check the entitlements of your visa here.
This White Card Course combines plain English, videos, photos, and questioning to ensure all learners are able to have the best possible chance at comprehending the required knowledge and skills. If you believe you will need assistance due to your Language, Literacy or Numeracy skills, please contact our office on 02 9232 1010 to discuss your training needs.
