From January 1, 2015, all students undertaking any form of training with a nationally recognised training provider in Australia will be required to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). The USI program is administered by the Australian Government Department of Industry.
A USI is an account (or reference number) made up of numbers and letters. The USI will allow your students online access to their training records and results (transcript) through their online USI account.
A USI is required for both new and continuing students undertaking nationally recognised Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses to receive their statement of attainment or qualification.
A USI may be obtained online and at no cost to students. This USI will stay with your students for life and be recorded with any nationally recognised VET course that is undertaken from the 1 January 2015.
Students can access their USI accounts online from computers, tablets or their smart phones anytime.
