General Construction Induction Training

CPCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry

In Brisbane, Australia, all construction workers need a General Construction Induction training card (formerly known as a White Card).

The training card ensures that you’re complying with the National Code of Practice for Induction for Construction work which has been declared by Work Safe Queensland. It is a tool that ensures your safety and the safety of those around you.

By completing a General Construction Induction, you will obtain your CPCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry qualification. This course will ensure that you are prepared to work in the construction industry, which is one of Australia’s largest industries. 

Because our General Construction Induction is accepted in all states and territories, you can book with confidence, knowing that your qualification is nationally recognised in Australia no matter where you are.
