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.
