A White Card is evidence that you have completed a General Construction Induction course/White Card course and workers must have it in their possession on site.

HOW LONG IS A WHITE CARD VALID FOR?

A white card does not have an expiry date. However, we recommend that you complete a new White card course if you have been absent from the construction industry for a period of two consecutive years.
