The construction induction programme in Australia was developed to make construction sites safer for all employees. In Sydney, completing white card training is mandatory for most jobs in the construction industry, but many people who have never worked in the industry before wonder whether or not they must complete the training before they apply for a job.
There is no definitive answer to this question, as each employer may have his or her own requirements. Some construction companies may only consider the applications of those who have white card training, while others may extend a conditional offer of employment and need you to complete the training prior to starting work.
Even if you’re applying for a position at a company that will hire people without white card training, employers will generally favour your application over other candidates if you have already completed construction induction training. White Card Training allows employers to know that you have researched the construction industry and understand the importance of its requirements.
Whether you would like to get a head start on training or you are already in the industry and want to progress your career, Edway Training can help you complete white card training in quickly and affordably.
