COURSE DETAILS

In order to work in the Construction Industry, you need to complete a White Card course. This course requires the ability to demonstrate personal awareness of Work Health & Safety (WHS) legislative requirements, and the basic principles of risk management and prevention of injury and illness in the construction industry.
