The ease of obtaining a white card online

  1. 1. Ease Of Obtaining A WhiteCard OnlineGovernment has been working on trying to find ways to makesafety regulations and Codes of Practice consistent in theconstruction industry all across the States and Territories.As a result, understanding and agreements have been formed.These agreements resulted in the legislation that becameeffective January 1, 2012 which allows an individual to obtaina White Card Online and it be valid across all States andTerritories.One of the concerns was that instead of requiring additionalfees and training be completed for an individual to qualify towork in another territory, there be one fee and course orlicense that would be accepted everywhere. This would benefitboth the individual and employer. The individual would save onthe frustration and expense of another card while the employercan rest assured that the employee is aware of the latestsafety requirements in all Territories.There are many options available for the individual who wantsto obtain a White Card. There are locations all over where youare able to have face to face training. There are resourcesthat can obtained which give you the time and location theclasses will be held. They are either one day trainings orbroken up over a series of several days. Many prefer classroomtraining as it provides the structure and setting that istraditional.Unfortunately, face to face training requires you to be at acertain place at a given or set time. This is not alwaysconducive to ones schedule. Work schedules are not alwaysflexible which is sometimes necessary. Additionally, locationsmay not be convenient either.Then you have other individuals whose schedules do not givethem the liberty of face to face training. Online training isa great alternative. It is convenient and allows theflexibility that is necessary.
  2. 2. An individual can go at their own pace based on the time theyhave available to devote to the training. Generally, thecourse can be completed within four to six hours if done inone day. However, the information is broken down into smallcomponents which allow even the full time worker to be able toprogress a little at a time.So, obtaining a White Card Online has never been moreconvenient. There are lots of providers that offer thetraining. It can be completed in as little as one day orstretched over however many days necessary to fit a busyschedule and will be honored across all states.
