Lay the foundations to work in Civil Construction with a strong base of essential skills in this practical program. Included is compulsory White Card training needed to work in this industry!

This program provides you with essential skills required to work in the Civil Construction sector. Without these basic skills, you won’t be able to set foot on a worksite!

In this program you’ll gain the skills and knowledge to control traffic on public roads and construction work sites for the safety of site workers and the general public. You’ll learn how to use a stop–slow bat, how to operate a radio, and how to direct traffic. You will also learn how to plan and prepare your worksite, as well as undertake clean-up of the site. This program will also provide you with experience in operating small plant and equipment.

White Card training is included as part of the program. This is compulsory for anyone working on an Australian construction worksite. Successful completion of this unit means you’ll be eligible to apply for a White Card through Service Tasmania. On successful completion of the program, you will be well-prepared with the skills you need to seek employment as an apprentice or labourer within the civil construction industry.
