Unique Student Identifier

Some students will undergo nationally recognised training and will be required to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI).

This includes nationally recognised training delivered as part of the Vocational Education and Training (VET) in Schools programs and vocational training certificates such as First Aid and Food Handlers.

Training organisations will not be able to enrol students or issue Certificates or Statements of Attainment if they have not been given the student’s USI.

Creating a USI account is free. The online USI account will keep an individual’s training records in one place so it’s available anytime on computers, tablets or smart phones.
