If you're studying nationally recognised training in Australia from 1 January 2015, you will be required to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI).
What is the USI?
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.
Your USI links to an online account that contains all your training records and results (transcript) that you have completed from 1 January 2015 onwards. Your results from 2015 will be available in your USI account in 2016.
When applying for a job or enrolling in further study, you will often need to provide your training records and results (transcript). One of the main benefits of the USI is the ability to provide students with easy access to their training records and results (transcript) throughout their life.
How to get a USI?
For more information visit the USI website, or download the following USI Fact Sheet.
It's free and easy to create your own USI and will only take a few minutes of your time.
While most students will create their own USI, some training organisations will also be able to create your USI for you. ATTA can do this as part of your enrolment process when you begin studying. You can access your USI account online from your computer, tablet or smart phone anytime.
