The Unique Student Identifier (USI) is a national student number that replaces the normal student numbers, allowing students to see all of their individual training results from all providers including all completed training units and qualifications in one space!
Each individual account will be linked to the National Vocational Education and Training (VET) Data Collection, meaning you will be able to find, collate and authenticate your VET achievements into a single transcript. It will also ensure that your training records are not lost.
You only need one USI for all of your study, and it stays with you for life!
From 1 January 2015 all students studying qualifications are required to register for a Unique Student Identifier before enrolment. This means when you come to National Training Solutions to enroll you will be required to submit your unique student identifier.
