The new Unique Student Identifier (USI)

From 1 January 2015 if you are undertaking nationally recognised VET training you will need to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). This includes study in Certificate I-Vocational Graduate Diploma level courses, apprenticeships, skill sets, or undertaking VCAL or VET in Schools courses.

It also applies regardless of whether you are a new student for the first time, or a continuing student re-enrolling in your course for 2015.

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.

A USI account will contain all your nationally recognised training records and results from 1 January 2015 onwards. Your results from 2015 will be available in your USI account in 2016.

You can access your USI account online from a computer, tablet or smart phone anywhere and anytime.

Once you create your USI you will need to give your USI to each training provider you study with. So you will be required to being your USI to your enrolment session with Box Hill Institute or CAE when you enrol for study for 2015.

See the instructions for creating your USI.
