What is a USI?
From 1 January 2015 if you are undertaking nationally recognised training, the Commonwealth Government requires that you have a Unique Student Identifier (USI).
This includes all students who are continuing a course they started prior to 2015, and all new students.
Anyone wanting to receive a “Statement of Attainment” for one of our recognised workshops will need a USI number.
It is free and easy for you to create your own USI online here. We strongly recommend that you sign up for a USI before commencing training. Each person who is completing the training will need to create their own individual USI number.
