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.


Many people work within HR management without formal qualifications in this field. This Certificate IV is suited for those looking to formalise their skills and knowledge in the HR area.

Who will benefit

HR managers or advisors, administration staff responsible for HR, or those with tertiary qualifications looking to demonstrate workplace competency.

What is required to gain the qualification

Attendance on the training program/s 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.

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 on the RPL process.
