  • Complete required documentation relevant to construction work, including completing risk assessments
  • Understand dates and times
  • Speak clearly and unambiguously in English
  • Explain, describe and verify needs and issues

If a trainee is concerned that they may not have the capabilities described above, please contact WAM Training on 1800 143 343 for advice.

Once competence is achieved, trainees will receive a Statement of Attainment (Nationally Accredited), and a Construction Induction Card (White Card) issued by WorkSafe Victoria.

  • A maximum of 12 trainees can attend this course
  • Trainees are required to wear enclosed shoes
  • For identification, trainees should bring a driver’s licence or passport
  • This course is delivered over 6 hours face-to-face with a blend of classroom-based and practical activities

  • Trainees will be assessed using a short-answer test and a teamwork-based activities involving the development of a Safe Work Method Statement and active participation in class discussion
  • Verbal assessments may be conducted for the short-answer test, however Trainees will still need to demonstrate basic reading and writing skills such as updating risk assessment information (please refer to the Language, Literacy and Numeracy requirements outlined above)
  • Verbal assessments must be conducted one-on-one, therefore may need to be postponed to a mutually agreeable date and time

If you have any questions about our Construction Induction Course, please contact WAM Training on 1800 143 343.

The OHS Regulations allow for a short exemption period provided the following applies:

  • The staff member is scheduled to undertake construction induction training within 28 days of commencing
  • The staff member has not worked in construction for the 2 years prior
  • The staff member receives direct supervision, directions, demonstrations and monitoring appropriate to the construction work
  • performed by the person for the 28 day period

We would have to perform an RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) assessment in order to assess your skills and knowledge against the unit of competency CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry. We would also need a range of evidence for each aspect of the unit. Any areas that aren’t able to be perfectly mapped would need to be gap-trained.

So, whilst WorkSafe might be correct on one hand, on the other hand, it is simply far easier and cheaper to attend the 6-hour course.
