Aim of this Course / Target Group

Since 2009 the construction industry induction in WA has been based on a nationally recognised training unit of competence. Under amended regulations, in States and Territories, both types of WA cards issued through training providers will be accepted by the regulatory authority as evidence that construction induction training has been successfully completed. Those people who have completed the previous ‘bluecard’ Course in Safety Awareness Training will not have to repeat the training. This course is suitable for any individual wishing to work in the WA construction industry.

Recognition of Interstate cards in WA issued prior to August 2099 can be found here.

The course is suitable for all employees.
