Enrol with your USI
To undertake nationally recognised training delivered by a registered training organisation you'll need a Unique Student Identifier (USI).
What is a Unique Student Identifier?
Your Unique Student Identifier (USI) is a reference number made up of numbers and letters that gives you access to your USI account. A USI will allow your USI account to be linked to the National Vocational Education and Training (VET) Data Collection allowing you to see all of your training results from all providers including all completed training units and qualifications.
Benefits of having a USI
The USI will make it easier for you to find and collate your VET achievements into a single authenticated transcript. It will also ensure that your VET records are not lost. The USI is available online and at no cost to you. This USI will stay with you for life and be recorded with any nationally recognised VET course that is completed after 1 January 2015.
You need a USI when enrolling or re-enrolling in nationally recognised training. This is true if you are enrolling for the first time. For example, if you are studying at TAFE or with a private training organisation, completing an apprenticeship or skill set, certificate or diploma course. It also applies if you are continuing or completing (re-enrolling) training, including nationally recognised training undertaken in secondary school.
