News / What is a USI (Unique Student Identifier) and how do I obtain one?

From 1 January, 2015 each student will need a Unique Student Identifier (USI) to obtain their certificate or qualification from their Registered Training Organisation (RTO), when completing nationally recognised training in Australia. A USI gives you access to your online USI account and you will be able to view all your training records in the one place.

To obtain a USI you will need to visit the website www.usi.gov.au and click on create USI. You will need your identification to create a USI. Once you have your USI, keep it in a safe place as you will need to provide it to your RTO every time you complete training.
