White card question

    Recommended Posts

    Guest Paula H

    Hi all,

     

    Can you advise what my OH (Carpenter) would need to start work in Adelaide.

     

    Would it just be a white card if working for a company? and if so how much is it and where can he get one from.

     

    thank you x

    A white card is required if you need to work on a construction site. Don't go for the online ones, book yourself on a one day course with a training company. There are lots of them in Adelaide, you will have to google to find one close to you.

    Hi,

     

    You do need a white card to work on site. You don't need a license if you work for a contractor, even if you subbie for them (they sign the contract with the builder/developer and have to show their license and insurance so the responsibility lays with them).

     

    You only need a license if you want to be a contractor, ie quote for work, invoice etc.

    If you have a CITB card you get it cheaper.

    Justin applied Joiner. He only just got his white card. He didnt really need it for his last job, he used his UK version on the few occassions he was asked and site managers accepted that. As he was out of work he decided to get one as lots of jobs ask for them, it lasts a life time so worth getting. It cost $109 but got $80 back with CITB card. Less than a days course and was more like an information session rather than a test. Justin wanted a temporary one and man wrote him one out before the day started so pretty simple.

    xx Hope all that makes sense LOL

    I think you wrong there mate, as long as your self employed quoting for work or not you still need a liscence.If you are subcontracting and only work for that company then you need to supplying some materials or you fall into the grey area of should the company really be employing you as an employee or as a subby ???

    Let me just clarify. If you sub contract to a company then that company will make you sighn a contract to them that you will work to their standards and be responsible for all your own work ect.. ect... so that is why you still need a contractors liscence. you even need a supervisers liscence if you work on your own !!!!:arghh: Its all about revenue i'm afraid !!!:policeman:
