Construction workers in the Northern Territory are required to undertake general construction induction training (GCIT) delivered by an approved registered training organisation (RTO). Workers, who complete GCIT in the Northern Territory, will be issued a ‘NT white card’ as proof of their training.

A worker carrying out construction work must keep their NT white card available for inspection.

Applications for GCIT cards should be made using the form 'Application for a NT general construction induction training card'.

RTOs can receive approval from NT WorkSafe to conduct training and issue a white card to successful course participants.

To apply for approval, a RTO must have the following unit of competency on scope:

  • CPCCWHS1001 - Prepare to work safely in the construction industry.

RTOs wishing to gain approval to deliver GCIT in the Northern Territory should complete the form ‘Application to deliver course general construction induction training’.​​

Please note - As of 8 December 2017, The "CPCCOHS1001A - Work safely in the contruction industry" unit will be superseded by the new "CPCCWHS1001 - Prepare to work safely in the construction industry" unit. The WHS Legislation does not mandate that any individual who already holds a White Card be retrained to the new unit. The white card holder is only required to be retrained if they have not carried out construction work in the preceding 2 years. Individuals who have completed the CPCCOHS1001A unit prior to 8 December 2017 are still eligible to obtain a NT White Card.
