General construction induction training

Summary

The Work Health and Safety Regulations 2011 (Cth) requires workers to complete general construction induction training before they can carry out construction work.
General construction induction training provides basic knowledge of construction work, the work health and safety laws that apply, common hazards likely to be encountered in construction work and how the associated risks can be controlled.
The nationally recognised unit of competency for general construction induction training is CPCCOHS1001A – Work safely in the construction industry. Upon successful completion of this training, a person will be eligible to apply for a general construction induction training card (CITC), commonly known as a white card within the industry.

Commonwealth CITC

Workers covered by the Commonwealth work health and safety legislation can apply for a Commonwealth CITC. Applications must be made within 60 days of the training certification being issued, or at any time if the applicant holds a written declaration issued by the RTO who delivered the training.

How to apply:

Please note: If you are working in Commonwealth workplaces and hold a valid state or territory issued CITC you are not required to apply to Comcare for a Commonwealth CITC as the Commonwealth will recognise valid CITCs issued by all state and territory authorities.
