Unique Student Identifier (USI) Mandatory from 1 January 2015
From 1 January 2015, all students undertaking Nationally Recognised training in Australia will need to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). Once you have your USI, you can use it throughout your life, to keep a centralised online record of all your Nationally Recognised training. Whether you're studying at TAFE, a private training organisation, completing a certificate or diploma course, apprenticeship or skill set - you'll need a USI.
The importance of having staff with a thorough knowledge and understanding of contract management has grown significantly in recent years. It is no longer just the contract manager or lawyer who needs this knowledge. All staff who are involved in the delivery or who oversee the contract need an understanding of the impact of their decisions or actions on the contract.
What is required to gain the qualification
Attendance on the training programs and successful completion of the assessment requirements. Assessment consists of set workplace tasks/assignments for each of the clustered units. Underpinning knowledge questions and third-party reports will also supplement the assessment approach.
Note: You will be required to submit evidence of your involvement in the management of contracts, including negotiations, management of human resources, creating procurement plans and creating budgets. Evidence will be collected through workshop activities and workplace projects.
Participants have up to 2 years to complete the training and assessment requirements of the qualification. This time frame will vary for each individual depending on their existing level of skills and knowledge and their ability to attend the training programs.
AIM WA recommends regular attendance on the monthly Free Qualification Support Workshops
while completing the assessment requirements.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is available for all or part of this qualification. Please refer to the Enrolment Kit for details or the document located under Related Information
