Can you believe this! Victoria in its wisdom lets a employer have a untrained worker on a construction site for up to 28 days. Of course the employee must be enrolled in an induction course and the fee's paid. But how would this stand up in a court of law if the worker was injured or worst killed!

We have had feed back that NSW and Victorian RTO's are not happy with the fact that our online construction induction white card is avaliable to residents in those states. I'm sorry guys but the feed back we are getting from our clients in your states is that your courses are always booked out, cost up to three times the amount of our white card and takes the student out of action for up to 6 hours. That is six hours lost productivity.

As of the 1st of January 2011 the online National construction safety induction "" became accepted in all Australian States and Territories.
