White Card – Issuance and Replacement Processes

“White Card” is the common name for the “CPCCWHS1001-Prepare to Work Safely in the Construction Industry” training course which is a mandatory requirement for construction workers in Australia.  Holding a valid White Card means an individual has successfully completed this certified general construction induction training course with a registered training organisation within Australia.

Axxis IQ students are deemed to have successfully completed their White Card training when the following processes have been completed:

    1. Axxis IQ has colour photocopies of two forms of ID evidence in accordance with the WHSQ ID evidence table below, including a form of photo ID,

    2. Axxis IQ has noted the provider’s name and the expiry date of a credit/debit card in the student’s name, per WHSQ policy.

    3. Axxis IQ has checked the ID documents and cards provided are not expired,

    4. the Axxis IQ Assessor & the Compliance Officer have deemed the student has successfully completed all assessments and requirements for
        CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to Work Safely in the Construction Industry.

When the 4-steps above are complete, Axxis IQ will issue the student with an official White Card titled, ‘Construction Induction’.

If any of the requirements described above have not been fulfilled, a White Card will not be issued. 

Please see a detailed list of acceptable forms of ID below:

Replacement Cards

If an individual has lost, had stolen, or their card has been destroyed, they may request a replacement card which will be issued at a cost of $50.  Applicants requiring a replacement card, must supply Axxis IQ with a copy of their Axxis IQ Statement of Attainment and declare in writing, the circumstances in which their card was lost, stolen or destroyed (see below). The Statement of Attainment supplied and a form of photo ID provided by the applicant containing their full name and DOB, must match the applicant’s details in the Axxis IQ Student Management System.

Replacement White Card applicants must also provide a statutory declaration or a completed Axxis IQ declaration. A Statutory Declaration may be obtained from the post office or from https://www.courts.qld.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0004/88555/gen-f-qld-stat-dec.pdf. An Axxis IQ declaration will be provided upon request.

Once the Statement of Attainment and the applicant’s ID has been verified and a declaration form has been completed and returned, Axxis IQ will issue a replacement card and will advise WHSQ the original card has been replaced.

New conditions for white cards in Queensland

General construction induction training (GCIT) provides important foundational knowledge of work health and safety laws, common site hazards, and information on how to control risks in the construction industry.

Under Queensland laws, anyone carrying out construction work must hold a GCIT card. GCIT cards, also referred to as ‘white cards’, are issued by registered training organisations (RTOs) approved by Workplace Health and Safety Queensland (WHSQ), when a student successfully completes the GCIT course (either CPCCWHS1001 or CPCWHS1001).

The process involves approved RTOs entering into an agreement with WHSQ, which requires the RTO to comply with certain conditions. New conditions have recently been introduced and RTOs are now required to notify WHSQ of upcoming GCIT courses at least 24 hours before the start of a GCIT course. This means RTOs will no longer be able to offer GCIT to people without prior notice.

The new conditions also:

    •  allow GCIT to be delivered face-to-face via connected real time delivery (CRTD) where an RTO is approved to do so

    •  requires GCIT trainers are approved by WHSQ

    •  caps class sizes at 15 students per trainer

    •  require that the GCIT course runs for a minimum of 4.5 hours

    •  require that RTOs use a mandated GCIT assessment (due to come into effect February 2023).
