Unique Student Identifier

What is the USI?

The USI is a unique identifier provided to all students participating in Vocational Education and Training.

Your USI will help keep your training records and results together in an online account controlled by you.

Each time you enrol to study with a new training organisation, your USI will be used to store your training records and results.

By having a USI you will be able to access your training records and results (or transcript) whenever you need them. For example, for a new employer or when you enrol to study at a new training organisation.

Your USI can be accessed online from your computer, tablet or smart phone and gives you access to your training records and results at your fingertips.

USIs are free for all students

The USI scheme is free. The USI Office does not charge a fee for individuals creating their USI and maintaining their USI account, which will bring together their records of nationally recognised training completed after 1 January 2015. 

Individuals can create their USI for free by themselves. It is a quick and easy process and will only take a few minutes of your time. Or if you like you can learn more about the steps to create a USI below. Follow this link http://usi.gov.au/ to start.
