Obtaining a White Card requires the successful completion of CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry unit of competency, delivered by various RTOs around the country. The White Card is an essential feature of construction work in Australia, providing induction safety training for workers. This includes managers, supervisors, surveyors, labourers and tradespeople, as well as others with less regular need to access active construction sites. The unit equips candidates with the necessary knowledge and skills to safely enter construction sites. The CPCCWHS1001 project is exploring possible amendments to the assessment requirements of the unit of competency so as to better address industry concerns around assessment quality, online identity fraud, and appropriate language and literacy.

The CPCCWHS1001 project undertook amendments to the assessment requirements of the unit of competency so as to better address industry concerns around assessment quality, online identity fraud, and appropriate language and literacy.

This case for endorsement was endorsed by the AISC at its December 2021 meeting. The new version will appear on the national training register early in 2022 subject to Skills Minister's approval.

The code of the unit of competency changes from CPCCWHS1001 to CPCWHS1001.
