With the harmonisation of work health and safety laws under the Model WHS Act, the construction induction card (White Card) is mutually recognised in all states and territories.
Mutual recognition arrangements amongst the states and territories enhance the capacity of construction workers to move across state/territory boundaries without the need to undertake construction induction training in each jurisdiction.
If you are unsure which White Card you should complete you can always discuss it with your employer or relevant work health and safety regulatory authority.
A White Card now replaces the previous Blue Card. Blue cards are still valid and do not yet have an expiry date. However, if you have lost your blue card you will need to do a White Card course as Blue Cards are no longer issued.

“I am blown away by the assistance Kevin provided during my course. Without your push I know I wouldn’t have done it. I never thought of myself being smart because all I know is warehousing / trucking driving work. Tests and textbooks freak me out big time due to my skills its always been something I hide from or play it off. I am working on my writing and spelling, going to do some more courses as soon as I can. Again, thanks so much Kevin, you are the man.”
