WHY CHOOSE START TRAINING FOR CONSTRUCTION INDUCTION – WHITE CARD MELBOURNE?

Start Training are Melbourne’s highest rated Industry Training Organisation and we strive to create a friendly and supportive training environment where students of all experiences and backgrounds can train comfortably and with confidence.

Our highly experienced trainers have a wealth of industry knowledge that ensures you get the best possible training course and our support staff are on hand to assist where needed including our dedicated Student Welfare Officer who can assist with one on one Language, Literature and Numeracy (LLN) training if required.

Although the White Card Melbourne course is a course in basic OH&S, our trainers will endeavour to broaden the knowledge of even the most experienced person in the class, while providing the necessary basic knowledge to those new to the industry.  It is all about making sure everyone goes home safe from the workplace.

In Victoria, the only approved way a Victorian RTO can teach a White Card Course is by conducting a face to face course.  Interstate RTO’s offer online White Card Courses and WorkSafe Victoria is obliged to recognise the card obtained in this manner, as they are national cards. However, there are construction sites in Victoria who will not allow you to work on their site if you have done an online interstate White Card course and you live in Victoria.

Our White Card Melbourne courses are conducted at our Ferntree Gully and Hoppers Crossing Training Centres.

WHY SHOULDN’T I COMPLETE MY COURSE ONLINE?

There are many organisations that offer online White Card Courses at a reduced price than Start Training. However we have many students come to us after they have completed these courses because they have had problems with either the course or the White Card not being recognised by Victorian Sites. Not all sites in Victoria will accept a White Card that has been completed online and you may be unable to work on site if the site operators do not recognise your online White Card.

Many online White Card courses also require several steps to obtain including an online quiz. Part of the qualification requires you do demonstrate correct use of PPE, to meet this requirement for an online course you may have to video yourself whilst donning PPE to prove competency, this may require you to purchse the PPE and possible webcam yourself and can add time and effort to completing your course.

At Start Training your course will be completed on the day with no extra requirements, the benefits of completing your White Card course with Start Training include:

  • No additonal steps required, complete your course in one day
  • We supply all required PPE and training materials
  • Face to Face teaching using highly experienced trainers
  • Our practical component observes a real life operational plumbing stockyard giving you valuable insight to site work and hazards

WHITE CARD MELBOURNE COURSE STRUCTURE

This is a one day classroom based course. The course consists of an interactive presentation conducted by one of Start Trainings highly experienced trainers along with a practical exercise that teaches correct use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and identification of workplace hazards. The practical component is conducted by observing a real operating plumbing stock yard that has a variety of activites including forklift use, truck and vehicle movements. Course materials are provided. Please let us know if you need assistance with reading or writing.

CHECK OUT OUR REVIEWS

Start Training are Melbourne’s Highest Rated Industry Training Organisation and we are consistently rated highly for customer service, student support and trainer knowledge, but don’t take our word for it, check out some of our reviews below:

I required a licence to operate a scissor lift (an "Elevating Working Platform" below 11m) and was sent to attend a 1 day class at "Start Training" to ensure I was fully capable and legally able to commence operating these machines. Start Training assisted prior to booking by suggesting I extend training beyond just operating a scissor-lift to booms and hoists. I found this to be good advice and coupled with excellent theory and hands on practical training enjoyed the training experience. Good Job Start Training team and much appreciated.

Hands down the best training/accreditation experience I have had in my 10 years in construction. Nick is personable and patient, puts you at ease and makes the experience enjoyable. He makes you want to be a better operator. Thanks again Nick! (Facilities were great, easy to find, plenty of parking, clean and organised, tea and coffee and kitchen facilities)

Finished the two day forklift course. The trainers for each day, Shaun for day one and Dean for day two were both fantastic for the instruction on each. Never would have thought that so much information, all of it useful, could be compressed into two days. Once done it felt like the class had been through a whole semester. All it takes is a lot of work and focus on your part to be able to do well on this course because the trainers provide everything else you need. As a driving Learner I was even given extra time on a forklift in my own private area to make sure I could handle the steering and Shaun was always a good source of encouragement and critique. All the instructions are clear for the course if you listen and pay attention, and if you do then you will learn and understand everything you need to. If ever I need to do a course for a license of any kind of machinery I will be looking to Start Training first to see if they teach it. Wish I could have posted this review a couple of weeks ago but couldn't get around to it. Cheers, Alexander.

Excellent teaching methods from our Trainer, Shawn, he got everyone to participate, and we all felt part of the class. Forgot the other gentleman's name, ooh what a rich of experience he has, he got everything on his finger tips. Honestly, I enjoyed my first drive of the forklift and though I was nervous most of the time and made some mistakes, these two gentlemen managed to bring my confidence back. Enough respect. #ItsAllAboutSafety, I will remember this from our Trainer.

Good course. Covered a lot. My only worry was that the 2 trainers would often disagree on things that should be fact and would have a little debate over the technical right answer which often led to confusion. But otherwise was actually an enjoyable course which was great.

I just completed the 2 Day EWP and Yellow Card Licence yesterday with Steve.C I gained confidence in using the Boomlift thanks to Steve's instructions and experience and the time I was to pactice on the Boom lift. Can't thank Steve.C and Start Training for excellent facilities and training. Just remember to rug up when outside for Boom Lift practice as it can get quite chilly up above the buildings.
Really good experience.Great trainers, helpful especially Brad W. I would recommend anyone looking at getting their HRW licences to give them a call.

Highly recommend start training ferntree gully to others. I learnt a lot over the 2 day course. I am glad i decided to do it. I now feel confident to safely use high risk access equipment. The way the information was presented was fantastic. The practice workbook helped me retain the information well. I also throughly enjoyed the experience we had a few laughs along the way and was less boring than expected. Brad W took our class, couldn’t ask for a better training experience. Thankyou all very much. Jake.

It was really good experience with start training. Trainers are not very strict as they know whoever come here to get any ticket They are not professionals. I took my forklift LF& LO from them . It was so easy to get both tickets from them. My trainer John was really good with good attitude . I extremely recommend start training to anyone. Who dont wana pay alot of money as I found they are cheaper then others in the market. Thank you Start Traning 👍👍👍

I did my excavator license at START TRAINING January 2018. I chose the 1 day course as I’d had experience in them. This class of 7 guys on this day, was absolutely amazing to watch the instructor BRAD W, have many machines running with mostly newbies on them for the first time and to watch BRAD W handle everything at once going to every machine back n forth.

Brilliant experience with the trainer, Macca and the Start Training organisation. Macca's knowledge is extensive and thorough on all the mobile equipment, relevant Acts and regulations. And he applies and enforces that from start to finish. His practical examples on the equipment was very impressive and his ability to teach and instruct from novices to experienced people is super effective and very engaging. Keep it going. Thanks.. . .

Excellent training, brilliantly scheduled days with ample time on equipment to develop a firm basis of practical knowledge. Theoretical Knowledge and safety is covered thoroughly to ensure students enter the workplace with a realistic comprehension of High Risk Work. Some chairs need replacing in the class rooms though, but over all an excellent place to learn and get permits for industrial equipment.
