WHAT IS INVOLVED IN THE GENERAL CONSTRUCTION INDUCTION COURSE?
General induction training teaches people the knowledge and skills described in the unit of competency to ‘Work Safely in the Construction Industry’. General induction is a structured training course that has a nominal duration of 4 hours face-to-face delivery (however other means of teaching delivery are available).
This can be extended, where necessary, to accommodate learning preferences or special learning needs. The course assessment will require the demonstration of all the elements of induction training as specified in the unit of competency. You should therefore expect that the course be delivered by a trainer who has experience in Workplace Health and Safety and/or the Building and Construction industry. Upon successfully completing the course a laminated card will be provided to you. It will have a serial number and should contain your signature and the date of the course.
