Unique Student Identifier

From 1 January 2015, all students undertaking nationally recognised training require a USI.

A USI is a reference number made up of numbers and letters that gives students access to their USI account. An individual's USI account is linked to the National Vocational Education and Training (VET) Data Collection allowing an individual to see all of their training results from all providers including all completed training units and qualifications.   

To create your USI go to the USI website at www.usi.gov.au and follow the steps below:

  • View the Student Video
  • Click on the Create a USI Panel and follow the directions
  • Record your USI number on the Enrolment Application form
  • If your Enrolment Application has already been submitted, advise Strategic of your USI number
  • Store your USI number in a secure place

Where you prefer Strategic Corporate Training to create a USI on your behalf, you must complete and submit a USI Authorisation form with your Enrolment Application form. 

Proof of identity will need to be provided via a current drivers’ licence number, Medicare card number or other official document, in order for the USI number to be issued.

Under the Student Identifiers Act 2014, a training organisation cannot issue a Statement of Attainment or a Qualification unless the student has been assigned a USI for training program completions.
