What is a construction induction card?
A construction induction card, or white card, signifies that you have completed all required training and can safely and efficiently work on a range of job sites. It is a mandatory ticket that provides clearance to work on sites throughout Victoria. Without one, you cannot seek employment in the construction industry.

The cost of a white care course is $150 per person. This covers the training needed to work on a job site in Victoria in a safe and efficient way. Requirements include written activities and verbal questions.
Are online white cards accepted in Victoria?
A white card course must be completed face-to-face. This is to maintain a high standard of teaching for everyone undertaking the training. WorkSafe Victoria does not permit online delivery of the white card course. At MultiSkills, our courses are conducted by industry experts at either our Geelong or Werribee location.
How long does it take to get a white card?

Under the current legislation, white cards do not expire but it is recommended that you refresh your knowledge by completing a new course if you have been absent from the construction industry for more than 2 years.
