If youre looking to get your White Card for construction industry work, you might also be wondering just how long does a White Card last?

How long does a White Card last?

So, how long is a White Card valid for? The answer is that it remains valid while you are working within the construction industry. This means as long as you continue to work consistently, you shouldnt need to retake your White Card course. However, if you are out of the industry for two consecutive years or more, your card will become invalid. If your card becomes invalid, you will need to retake the course in order to obtain a valid White Card, again. This applies to all states and territories within Australia.

How to obtain a White Card

You can obtain a White Card by completing a White Card course through a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) such as Express Online Training. For a few lucky Australian states, a White Card can be obtained through an online course or virtual classroom in NSW, WA, QLD, VIC and Tasmania.

For all other states and territories, a White Card course must currently be taken in a face-to-face setting.

What happens if I lost my White Card?

If you have lost your White Card, or it has become damaged, Express Online Training can offer our assistance. Through WorkSafe QLD, we can provide you with a new White Card, recognised across all Australian states and territories.
