White card QLD

This is a tough time for all of us as we find our way through the Covid-19 outbreak. It’s also a tough time to be in education.

The spread of the Coronavirus has led to cancelling class based training, ensuring our trainers health and safety by not placing them in danger or travelling interstate as well as self isolation.

While Staysafe has suspended class based training for all of its courses. We are being innovative and thinking outside the box to continue delivering these courses, we have taken to video conference which seems to be working well with this course.

How video conference works, Staysafe hosts the meeting and invites you to participate. Video on the desktop is on which means we can see each other and talk to each other as if in a classroom. You will have downloaded your workbook from the private page to complete and the screen is shared so that we can both see where we are at. You still get that guidance and one on one mentoring to successfully complete the course.

Training does not need to be put off till another time, if you need to do this training, it can be done from the comfort of your home or workplace without physical contact.

Staysafe Industry Training is a proud recipient of Construction SkillsQueensland (CSQ) funding for CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry (White card).

Eligibility criteria applies to access CSQ funding. CSQ have waived some of the eligibility criteria for funding for this course. See next column for those changes.
