When considering completing a White Card ACT course it is important to understand what is allowed in your state.


Online White Card Restrictions:

The ACT state government only allows their White Cards to be issued through face to face courses to people living in ACT. This means you can not receive a ACT White Card online.

White Cards from any Australian state or territory are nationally recognised. Before completing your White Card, we suggest you check with your employer to see if they have specific requirements for how White Card training should be undertaken.
