About applying for a white card
You must complete your white card training in Tasmania with a registered training organisation (RTO).
Once you have successfully completed this training, the RTO will give you a certificate of training/statement of attainment. This statement will not be accepted if it does not include:
- your name
- the RTO number
- the date of issue, and
- training unit number.
When training is completed through the Department for Education, Children and Young People (DECYP) a certificate of training/statement of attainment might not be provided. In these cases a declaration letter from DECYP must be provided with the application.
The letter must:
- state that you have successfully completed general construction induction training
- include a signature from the Director/Chief Executive Officer
You have 60 days after completing your training to apply for a white card at a service centre. If it is later than 60 days, you will need a written declaration by the RTO that you have successfully completed the training.
Interstate white cards
You do not need a Tasmanian white card if you already have a card from another state that is current and valid.
