VET regulator sets its sights on online White Card Training

In a recent press release, the VET regulator ASQA identified white card training as one of its three 'blitz' areas, alongside aged and community care.

The review will take place following concerns about the quality of some offerings by RTOs, with online course offerings mentioned in their press release, particularly in relation to the ability to assess communication and comprehension skills identified in the training package, as well as reviewing how the identity of the user completing online tests is validated.

As the White Card is an essential safety requirement for construction workers you can understand why this would be of significant concern to employers, in both the management of risks and on site incidents, and ensure their employees possess the knowledge and skills to apply safe work practices.

If you're delivering the White Card online, it could be timely to review current practices and strategies for ensuring the authenticity of submissions.
