Online White Card Restrictions:
Most states now only allow their White Cards to be issued through face to face courses to people living in their state. This means you can not receive these state’s White Cards online.
If you would like to complete your training online at a pace that suits you, but live in a state that does not have the option of online training, you are able to complete another state’s White Card.
All states and territories have agreed to implement the National Code of Practice for Induction for Construction Work. The aim of the code is to produce a nationally consistent approach to construction induction training.
