About the course

There are no prerequisites for this course.

You need to have access to a working web camera for this course. You also need to have Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including a hard hat, high vis vest, ear protection and eye protection.

PPE pick up: At this stage there will be no PPE pick up on campus. Students will still need to supply their own PPE until CIT opens up for normal operation and CIT cannot send this equipment out in the mail.

All students who do not have PPE can still enrol and complete most areas of this course. These students will be permitted to do the PPE Demonstration component at a later date (after lockdown, when they can safely collect PPE) - however your grade will remain pending until this component is completed.

Important: Students will not be able to apply for their white card through Access Canberra until all components of this training is complete and they have received a Pass grade.

Persons that satisfactorily complete the competency will be eligible to apply for the National Construction Induction Card. You have 60 days from issue of transcript to apply for your card. Applications are made online via the Access Canberra Website. The cost will be $39 and is payable at the time of applying for the card.
