The Government rules for getting a White Card changed in 2019, and further changes have been made under COVID-19 provisions.
The requirements are different depending on State/Territory.
First, select your State by clicking on the map below:
The Official White Card course is known as "CPCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry" and can only be delivered by RTO's
Urban E-Learning Pty Ltd (Registered Training Organisation – 31973) has been a compliance specialist RTO in good standing since 2009. We have been delivering the White Card as an online course for ten years across Australia. Towards the end of 2019, Government departments made changes to the license conditions of RTO’s in different States which affected the way in which the White Card course can be delivered in some States. Click on your State or Territory on the map above to find out more.
The official course code for the current White Card course is CPCWH1S001. (CPCWHS1001 is the current equivalent to the superseded CPCOHS1001A unit of competency). It’s very important if you’re looking to get your White Card, online or through face-to-face training, that you make sure the training company you get it from is a properly registered RTO who has this course code “on their Scope”.
There are currently some unscrupulous operators who are advertising "online" White Card training with an instant Certificate for only $25.
These providers DO NOT issue an actual White Card, nor a proper Statement of Attainment, as they are not RTO's. This is only mentioned in small print at the bottom of their websites!
White Card Course Legislation Information
Under National Health and Safety laws, any person doing construction work in Australia must have successfully completed a general WHS construction induction course for the industry before they start work on any construction activity. Construction activities include housing construction, civil construction, major renovations, repairs, refurbishment, asbestos removal, carpentry, bricklaying, concreting, plumbing and roof, floor and wall tiling etc.
Under State “harmonisation” laws, there is mutual recognition of the construction induction cards obtained in other states and territories. So, for instance, if you obtain your White Card in WA, and then later move to NSW, building sites in NSW will recognise your Card.
What Changes Took Place to White Card Training Delivery in Australia in 2019?
As mentioned above to get a White Card you need to complete the Unit of Competency known as CPCWH1S001. This Unit has always been available by completing either Face-to-Face training in a classroom or online.
The Unit also forms part of the broader course CPC08 Construction, Plumbing and Integrated Services Training Package which enables required training to be delivered through the vocational education and training system by registered training organisations.

This is a government issued “Unique Student Identifier”. If you already have a USI, you will need to include it in your course registration. If you don’t have one, a new one can be created easily for you, during the course registration process. For more information regarding the USI please visit http://www.usi.gov.au.
- Why are there online White Card courses advertised for only $25?
These are essentially a scam. They are offered by a previously banned RTO and they do not provide a proper White Card.
