From January 2015, Australians undertaking vocational education and training will be able to build and access a complete online record of their results using a Unique Student Identifier (USI).
The USI initiative gives students easy access to a secure digital transcript of all completed training units and qualifications by linking details of their VET achievements in a single online account, regardless of where they studied.
What is the Unique Student Identifier (USI)?
A Unique Student Identifier is a unique reference that will enable you to access your training records and results online anytime from your computer, tablet or smartphone. Your USI is yours for life.
Who needs a USI?
From January 2015 any student undertaking national recognised training will need to have a Unique Student Identifier. Each time you enrol with a new training provider your USI will be required so they can make sure your training records are added to your account. When you complete your training with Your Licence after the inception date, you will be required to provide your USI to us at the enrolment or assignment submission stages.
What are the benefits of having a USI?
Your USI will make it easier for you to view, send and print out a complete transcript of your training records and achievements which will be useful when applying for a job, demonstrating pre-requisites for further training or applying for training credit or recognition of prior learning. No more lost qualifications!
How do I get a USI?
You can apply for your own USI in the USI registry, or your training provider may be able to apply for a USI on your behalf. Click here to find out how to get your USI online today.
Nationally recognised training information
Only registered training organisation’s (RTOs) can issue nationally recognised qualifications. Nationally recognised training ensures training meets the standards required by industry and gives you confidence that your qualifications are of the highest quality and will be accepted and recognised everywhere in Australia.
