    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 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.

    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.

    You do not need to get a Tasmanian white card if you are from another state and hold a current and valid card.
