The long awaited review by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) into the unit of competency CPCCOHS1001A, commonly known as the White Card, was released on the 16th December 2013.
ASQA’s review into the effectiveness of the Construction White Card, a mandatory nationally recognised accreditation card for work safety induction training, makes six recommendations to help improve the safety of workers at construction sites.
The report also highlighted from their audit of RTOs delivering this unit of competency, many key areas of non-compliance with respect to selected standards from within the Standards for NVR registered training organisations 2012. Particular focus of many of these non-compliances was on the online mode of delivery.
Over the next few weeks, we will look at the report’s recommendations and non-compliance issues and show how the Ammonite TOMS learning management system, resources and methodology provides solutions to these problems.
