Your USI is a reference number made up of numbers and letters. This number creates a secure online record of all your nationally recognised training records and results from 2015. Your USI account can be easily accessed at any time online from a computer, tablet or smart phone.


Important privacy information on your USI?

The Student Identifiers Act 2014 and the Privacy Act 1988 protects your privacy. 

How your privacy is protected:

  • the USI Registry System keeps minimal personal information
  • students control access to their USI account
  • the account holder must authorise USI data collection and use.

You can learn more about your privacy HERE.

Why do I need a USI?

  • students who are enrolling in nationally recognised training for the first time.
  • school students completing nationally recognised training.
  • students continuing with nationally recognised training.
What are the benefits of a USI?
  1. Students will have a complete record of their Australian VET achievements from a single and secure online source.
  2. You will be able to confirm your qualifications to employers when seeking for a job.
  3. Training organisations will assess the students’ prerequisites quickly.
