STUDENT UNIQUE IDENTIFIER
** Important Information for all participants**
All participants enrolling in nationally recognised training in Australia will need a Unique Student Identifier (USI). A USI gives participants access to their online USI account which is made up of ten numbers and letters. It will look something like this: 3AW88YH9U5.
The exclusive 10 digit number consisting of letters and numbers will be used to link your USI account to training records.
Obtaining a USI is FREE and easy. To create your own USI online go to: www.usi.gov.au.
Once you have your USI please bring it with you to your training course and include it on your enrolment form.
NB: Under the legislation, training organisations can only issue certification when they have received your USI.
