White Card Course Overview

CPCWHS1001 Prepare to Work Safely in the Construction Industry is the name of the white card course. This is due to the name of the qualification students receive upon their completion, colloquially known as the white card or as a general construction induction card.

First Aid Pro is a registered training organisation (RTO) that offers a SafeWork approved white card course to suit anyone’s general construction induction training needs. Working with our highly experienced trainers, this qualification ensures our graduates have the required knowledge, skills, and personal awareness to work safely in the construction industry, access operational construction zones or construction sites, or enter any other site where construction work may occur.

Students who successfully complete this general construction induction course are awarded a same day statement of attainment to prove to their future employers that they possess the relevant knowledge to work on a construction site.
