From 1 January 2015 all students undertaking nationally recognised training delivered by a registered training organisation (RTO) will need to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). A USI gives students access to their online USI account which is made up of ten numbers and letters. It will look something like this: 3AW88YH9U5.
A USI account will contain all of a student’s nationally recognised training records and results from 1 January 2015 onwards. A student’s results from 2015 will be available in their USI account in 2016.
When applying for a job or enrolling in further study, students will often need to provide their training records and results. One of the main benefits of the USI is that students will have easy access to their training records and results throughout their life.
Students can access their USI account online from a computer, tablet or smart phone anywhere and anytime. You can find more details about the USI at: http://usi.gov.au/Training-Organisations/Documents/FactSheet-Student-Information-for-the-USI.pdf
