White cards

Students whose VET qualification training and assessment will involve them successfully working in industries such as construction or plumbing will need to be issued with a white card (or general construction induction card.)

To be able to issue white cards to students, your school RTO needs to:

  1. have CPCWHS1001 — Prepare to work safely in the construction industry unit on your scope of registration as part of either Construction, Plumbing and Services (CPC) or non-CPC training package qualifications that require that explicit competency
  2. ensure that your trainers and assessors hold the CPCCOHS2001A — Apply OHS requirements, policies and procedures in the construction industry competency
  3. using the VET app in the QCAA Portal, add the unit to the appropriate qualification in your school RTO’s scope as an explicitly listed unit of competency
  4. once the added unit has been approved and added to, enter into an agreement with Workplace Health and Safety Queensland to be able to issue white cards.

Note: New conditions for issuance of a white card or general construction induction training (GCIT) card have been in place since 1 August 2023.

See the following pages for further information: New conditions for white cards in Queensland and General construction induction.
