A White Card is a mandatory requirement for construction workers in Australia. This means that if you want to work in the construction industry, you have to have one. Even if you are only visiting Australia for a short period of time on a working holiday visa, you are not allowed to work on a construction site without a White Card.
White Card is the common name for the ‘Prepare to Work Safely in the Construction Industry CPCCWHS1001’ training course. Holding a valid White Card means that you have completed official, certified general construction induction training with a registered organisation within Australia.
