Fraudulent construction training courses offered online

Prior to commencing work in the Northern Territory construction industry, workers must complete general construction induction training. Workers looking to get a NT white card must always use an approved registered training organisation (RTO) for their training. NT WorkSafe is aware of misleading websites advertising discounted online ‘white card courses’; workers who complete these online courses will not quality for a NT white card. Approved RTOs will issue a statement of attainment to a worker when the unit of competency is completed. ‘CPCCWHS1001 - Prepare to work safely in the construction industry’ does not offer the national unit of competency.

Due to the practical components of the general construction induction training, NT WorkSafe requires workers to complete face-to-face training with an NT WorkSafe approved white card training provider. Workers who complete this training will receive a statement of attainment by the RTO, with a copy of the statement to be submitted with a completed application form to the Territory Business Centre, who will issue the NT white card on behalf of NT WorkSafe.

For more information on white cards, contact NT WorkSafe on 1800 019 115.
