If you are heading out into the workforce, or changing careers, it’s important to know that some jobs require you to have a white card in order to work. At Express Online Training, we offer White Card courses for Queensland, Western Australia, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania. Depending on the location, you may be able to complete your White Card course completely online.
So, what jobs require a White Card? Read on to find out!
What is a White Card?
Sometimes referred to as a General Construction Induction Card, a White Card is needed to work within the Australian construction industry. It can be obtained by completing a course through a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), such as Express Online Training. White Cards are now given the same name across all states and territories, but this wasn’t always the case. For example, in Victoria, the White Card used to be called the Red Card, in New South Wales it was called the Green Card, and in Queensland, the Blue Card.
What jobs require a White Card?
As a general rule, a White Card is required for jobs that take place on a construction site. In NSW, this includes:
People who access operational construction zones (when unaccompanied or not directly supervised by an inducted person)
Workers who routinely enter operational construction zones for work
The topics covered in the White Card course are related to safety within construction zones. For example, according to SafeWork SA, South Australia, the course provides basic knowledge in the following:
Work health and safety laws
Common site hazards, and
How to control the associated risks
There are many White Card jobs out there. If you’re looking to work within the construction industry, you may choose to pre-emptively complete a White Card course, in order to be ready to commence work when it becomes available.
Where can I get a White Card?
Express Online Training provides online White Card courses for Queensland, Western Australia, and Tasmania. In the other states, you are required to do the course face-to-face, rather than online.
States/territories where you can complete an Express Online Training White Card course online include:
States/territories where you must complete your White Card course face-to-face include:
Australian Capital Territory

The purpose of the Disability supplement is to provide additional information to assist with answering the disability question.
Disability in this context does not include short-term disabling health conditions such as a fractured leg, influenza, or corrected physical conditions such as impaired vision managed by wearing glasses or lenses.
If you indicated the presence of a disability, impairment or long-term condition, please select the area(s) in the following list:
Hearing impairment is used to refer to a person who has an acquired mild, moderate, severe or profound hearing loss after learning to speak, communicates orally and maximises residual hearing with the assistance of amplification. A person who is deaf has a severe or profound hearing loss from, at, or near birth and mainly relies upon vision to communicate, whether through lip reading, gestures, cued speech, finger spelling and/or sign language.
A physical disability affects the mobility or dexterity of a person and may include a total or partial loss of a part of the body. A physical disability may have existed since birth or may be the result of an accident, illness, or injury suffered later in life; for example, amputation, arthritis, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, paraplegia, quadriplegia or post-polio syndrome.
In general, the term â€˜intellectual disabilityâ€™ is used to refer to low general intellectual functioning and difficulties in adaptive behaviour, both of which conditions were manifested before the person reached the age of 18. It may result from infection before or after birth, trauma during birth, or illness.
A general term that refers to a heterogeneous group of disorders manifested by significant difficulties in the acquisition and use of listening, speaking, reading, writing, reasoning, or mathematical abilities. These disorders are intrinsic to the individual, presumed to be due to central nervous system dysfunction, and may occur across the life span. Problems in self-regulatory behaviours, social perception, and social interaction may exist with learning disabilities but do not by themselves constitute a learning disability.
Mental illness refers to a cluster of psychological and physiological symptoms that cause a person suffering or distress and which represent a departure from a personâ€™s usual pattern and level of functioning.
Acquired brain impairment
Acquired brain impairment is injury to the brain that results in deterioration in cognitive, physical, emotional or independent functioning. Acquired brain impairment can occur as a result of trauma, hypoxia, infection, tumour, accidents, violence, substance abuse, degenerative neurological diseases or stroke. These impairments may be either temporary or permanent and cause partial or total disability or psychosocial maladjustment.
This covers a partial loss of sight causing difficulties in seeing, up to and including blindness. This may be present from birth or acquired as a result of disease, illness or injury.
Medical condition is a temporary or permanent condition that may be hereditary, genetically acquired or of unknown origin. The condition may not be obvious or readily identifiable, yet may be mildly or severely debilitating and result in fluctuating levels of wellness and sickness, and/or periods of hospitalisation; for example, HIV/AIDS, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, Crohnâ€™s disease, cystic fibrosis, asthma or diabetes.
A disability, impairment or long-term condition which is not suitably described by one or several disability types in combination. Autism spectrum disorders are reported under this category.

All staff and learners are expected to maintain high standards of academic honesty and integrity.
General misconduct is where a learner acts dishonestly, harasses other learners or staff, interferes with students or staff, prevents or disrupts the learning of others, disobeys/fails to comply with contractual or legal requirements, damages or steals EOT property or Intellectual Property (IP) or the property of others, alters, defaces or improperly accesses EOTs documents or records, prejudices the reputation of EOT or otherwise acts in an improper manner.
General misconduct includes the misuse of any facility in a manner which is illegal or which is or will be detrimental to the rights or property of others. This includes the misuse, in any way, of any computing or communications equipment or capacity to which the learner has access.
Academic misconduct is defined as any attempt to cheat, falsify, plagiarise or otherwise act dishonestly in undertaking an assessment task, or assisting other learners to do so. This includes any attempt to gain advantage from unauthorised possession or use of EOTs learning or assessment materials or other intellectual property.
Learners may be accused of cheating if they seek to gain advantage by unfair means such as copying another students’ work, or in any way mislead or deceive a trainer/assessor about their knowledge, identity, ability, or the amount of original work they have done. Cheating can include collusion or plagiarism or any other method of presenting the work of another person without acknowledgment or referencing.
Cheating may also include breaching any process for undertaking assessment tasks, compromising the assessment activities of other learners, or impersonating a learner or facilitating a person to impersonate a learner in any assessment activity.
Any attempt or conspiracy to attempt academic misconduct is still academic misconduct, regardless of whether or not the attempt was successful.
For the purpose of assessment preparation and submission, learners are not permitted to work in collaboration with others.
Any person accused of misconduct are regarded as innocent of the alleged misconduct until they have either admitted to it or been found by proper inquiry to have so behaved.
Where general or academic misconduct has occurred by a learner, EOT will take disciplinary action. This action may include, but is not limited to:
A formal caution being issued;
A requirement to re-sit an assessment or undertake additional assessment, at additional cost to the leaner;
Cancellation of enrolment regardless of progress;
Exclusion from future enrolment with EOT, and/or
Report incidents that are not compliant with EOT’s Academic Conduct Policy to the appropriate regulator, where required by regulations or licensing conditions.
Learners are notified in writing of penalties as a consequence of any misconduct. The grounds for appeal are:
Procedural irregularities, and/or
Factual errors on which the decision was based and which were of such magnitude as to invalidate the decision.
Appeals must be lodged in writing with the Training Operations Manager by writing to email@example.com within 20 days of the date of the learner being notified of the penalty. The appeal process commences within 10 working days from the date of receipt of the learner’s appeal.
The process for making an appeal depends on the nature of the alleged misconduct and may require one or more of the following:
A written statement
A statutory declaration
Evidence disputing the charge of misconduct
In the event that a learner has engaged in academic misconduct or general misconduct and the penalty includes cancellation of enrolment resulting in the learner being unable to receive the unit of competency, and/or exclusion from other EOT courses, EOT will review the offence to determine if there are grounds for a refund.
Whether or not a refund is granted is at the discretion of EOT. A decision will be made in line with EOT’s Refund Policy. If a refund is granted, EOT will deduct an administration fee from the refund amount for time and resources used in providing administrative support services to the learner. The administration fee is 50% of the course(s) and any other relevant fees (current 01/01/2019).
