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 Sunshine West Training Centres.


On successful completion of this White Card training course, you will be issued with a Certificate of Completion.  This will allow you to work in the construction industry while WorkSafe is processing your White Card.  You will also receive a State of Attainment for the unit of competency, CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry.  Start Training will apply for your White Card to WorkSafe on your behalf and this will be sent to you by mail.


If you’re running a business, we can deliver this course onsite at your workplace, saving you time and money. We can deliver the course for groups of 8 people or more in all areas of Melbourne and county Victoria.Please contact us to discuss you companies’ requirements, or call (03) 9756 0244
