Just finished my white card with etrainu and it’s a great course, easy to understand content and enjoyed being able to complete the course in my time without any pressure. Completed the assessments, uploaded my documentation and had a confirmation phone call within 2 hours, way to go. Good for all busy people. Highly recommend the course and etrainu.
“I never worked in construction and thought getting my White Card would be hard. I needed a White Card to start working urgently so I signed up with etrainu and did the course and they gave me my White Card number that day so I could start work the next day. Even when I lost my wallet it was easy to get a replacement card. Really reliable company to do training with. Couldn’t be happier.”
The White Card Online Course is designed to teach you the basic knowledge of risks in construction work and how to prevent them. It will help you to understand why safety in construction is so important, how to work safely and think about safety as you carry out tasks. The White Card is also known as the ‘General Construction Induction Card’ and was known as the ‘Blue Card’ in the past. It’s required for anyone that wishes to work in the construction industry in Australia. To sign up to this course you need a Unique Student Identifier (USI) Number. This is part of a Government initiative, where all students studying VET in Australia require a USI number. If you don’t have your USI yet, don’t worry – we’ll help you get one when you sign up! It’s easy!
You can sign up and start your training right now, which can take anywhere from 2-6 hours to complete, depending on your pace. Once you complete the white card online course and successfully complete your assessment, you will be immediately issued with a Statement of Attainment. Many of our students require their White Cards urgently and provide this certificate to their employers as proof of completion, while their card is posted to them in the mail. We can also provide you with your unique White Card number if needed. Your White Card is also posted to your address in the mail. There are no hidden fees – our price includes postage and handling.

Why do I have to submit a Statutory Declaration for my White Card?
Submitting a Statutory Declaration (Stats Dec) and valid Photo Identification (ID) is a regulatory requirement for the White Card Course. On completion of your White Card online course you’re required to submit a Stat Dec and valid ID, both signed by a Justice of the Peace or Commissioner of Declarations within Australia. When these items have been received and you have been marked competent you will be issued with your White Card which is valid in ALL Australian states. If you previously had a White Card, but have not worked in the construction industry for 2 years or more, you must renew your certificate.

When will I get my Statement of Attainment?
As soon as you have been marked competent, you will receive an online Statement of Attainment in your training profile and via email. Many of our students provide this certificate to their employers, while they are waiting for their White Card to arrive in the mail. Please note that we must receive your Stat Dec and valid ID via post, email or fax before we can mark you as competent.
When will I get my White Card in the post?
Due to the new delivery schedule of Australia Post, it may now take anywhere from 5-7 business days to receive your White Card for standard delivery. However, you may give us a call and we can provide you with your White Card number when you are marked off. Or, contact us when you send in your documentation and we can arrange for Express Post (next day delivery).
