Unique Student Identifier

The Unique Student Identifier (USI) scheme, enabled by the Student Identifiers Act 2014, allows learners to access a single online record (transcript) of their VET achievements. The scheme also allows for reliable confirmation of these achievements by employers and other RTOs.

A USI gives you access to your online USI account, which is made up of ten numbers and letters. It will look something like this: 3AW88YH9U5.

Under legislation, you must have a USI to receive a certificate for nationally recognised training. An RTO can only issue certification after they have received your USI.

How do I apply for a USI?

Go to

Click on Create a USI and then follow instructions.

You will need to put your USI on your enrolment form that you will fill out at the beginning of your course so please save your USI
