Unit of Competency
- TLIF0020 – Safely Access the Rail Corridor
All participants must hold and present on the day of training a Statement of Attainment Certificate, showing either “CPCCOHS1001A- Work safely in the construction industry” OR “CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry”. Either of these units of competency are a prerequisite for asbestos training. If you completed WHITE CARD formal training AFTER September 2009 you will have completed the correct unit of competency. If TRAINING WAS PRIOR to 2009 you will need to redo the WHITE CARD.
If a Statement of Attainment Certificate showing you have completed either of these units is not presented on the day of training we will not be able to issue you with a certificate to show you have completed the course. You must present your white card certification as described above before we can issue your certificate for the asbestos training course.
This is not a SafeWork NSW prerequisite, but a National Training Authority requirement which must be met.

• Read and understand English as well as understand work related safety signs and symbols.
