Unique Student Identifier (USI)

Effective from 1 January 2015, all students enrolled in nationally recognised training, will be required to provide their registered training organisation (RTO) with their USI and date of birth.  If you undertake any recognised type of training i.e., FIRST AID course, then you need to register with USI.  It is very simple and this process, takes about 2 minutes.  Here is more information about the process.  It is just a way to keep track of what you have done.  You must all enroll with USI.

What is a Unique Student Identifier (USI)

In April 2012, the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) agreed to the implementation of a specially designed tool called the Unique Student Identifier (USI) to provide all students in Australia with the ability to obtain a complete record of their Vocational Education and Training (VET) enrolments and achievements from a single source.  Registering for a USI is simple and the registration process is available online and at no cost to the student. This USI will stay with the student for life and be recorded with any nationally recognised VET course that is undertaken.

Students can now create a USI by following the process below:

1. Log on to http://portal.usi.gov.au/student
2. When applying for a USI, students will be required to supply one of the following valid Australian forms of ID:

  • Driver’s Licence
  • Medicare Card
  • Australian Passport
  • Visa (with Non-Australian Passport)
  • Birth Certificate (Australian)
  • Certificate Of Registration By Descent
  • Citizenship Certificate

We recommend if you or your colleagues are likely to undertake nationally recognised training e.g. CPR or first aid training, that they register for a USI now.
