If you want to step on-site or labour for a construction company in Australia, you are going to need to complete your Construction Induction training.
This includes tradies with overseas student visas who want to work on and go on-site in the construction industry.
If you do not complete the White Card training and still decide to go on-site, not only will you receive heavy fines, you put yourself and others at an unnecessarily high risk of injury or harm.
In your General Construction Induction course, you will receive demonstrations on keeping yourself safe on a construction site, safe work practices, and what appropriate on-site conduct looks like.
