You may have heard that you can only obtain the Construction Induction card by taking the required course in person. However, due to the current situation, certificates obtained online are being accepted for safety measures. But what would you need when taking the virtual White Card course in Melbourne?
Is the online White Card Course Accepted in Melbourne?
Interested participants are still encouraged to take face-to-face Construction Induction training if possible. This is because of certain activities required that would prepare you for your work. However, the virtual White Card course is currently being accepted due to the current situation with COVID-19.
What are the Requirements for the Virtual White Card Course in Melbourne?
The virtual White Card course has mostly the same requirements as face-to-face training with one notable addition. You will need to have a device like a desktop computer, laptop or tablet that is compatible with Zoom. You can check for your device’s compatibility with Zoom here.
- PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). Participants are expected to have the required PPE before they can take the course. This includes a hard hat, safety glasses, earplugs, and a high visibility reflective vest. The PPE is available for sale through the hardware warehouses.
- LLN (Language, Literacy and Numeracy). The basic understanding, reading and writing of English is required since the use of interpreters and translators is not allowed. To determine your eligibility for enrolment, you will be required to complete the LLN indicator.
