Unique Student Identifier (USI) Mandatory since 1 January 2015

Since the 1st of January 2015, all students undertaking Nationally Recognised training in Australia 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.

Pathways Explained

TBA Pathway:

This pathway provides you with a set of prescribed online assessment tasks for each unit. You must successfully address all of these tasks in order to achieve the qualification. You will need to utilise your knowledge, skill and experience in your chosen field to fulfil the assessment evidence requirements. This pathway requires you to have your workplace supervisor’s support in order to help you to develop evidence in areas where you have less experience. Full guidance and support is provided by your Assessor.

RPL Pathway:

This pathway provides you with a set of nationally prescribed online requirements (Skills and Knowledge) for each unit.  You must successfully address all of these requirements in order to achieve the qualification. You will collate your evidence in the form of a portfolio, and you will list each piece of evidence against the prescribed requirements. Your evidence should demonstrate that you carry out these nationally prescribed requirements in the workplace and have underpinning knowledge of the subject matter. No Workplace Supervisor support is required for this pathway. Full guidance and support is provided by your Assessor.
