Blue Card - its easy as one...two....FREE!

Are you currently an active Technical Official for Queensland? Do you hold a BlueCard?  

As a volunteer Queensland legislation requires anyone working with children to hold a BlueCard regardless of how often you come in contact with children.

If you do not have a Bluecard it's easy to apply and it's free. If you do have a Bluecard then you just need to link your existing card.
