Unique Student Identifier (USI) Number

What's a USI?

A Unique Student Identifier (USI) number is a unique 10 character number which is linked to a student’s nationally recognised training records and results. A USI allows students to login to a central point to access training records and results. These records may take up to 12 months to appear due to annual RTO reporting requirements.

Do I need a USI?

As of 1 January 2015, it is a national requirement for all students enrolled in nationally recognised training with a registered training organisation to have a USI. By law, RTOs will be unable to issue a formal Certificate or Statement of Attainment to students who have not provided a USI.

To determine if your course is nationally recognised, look for the nationally recognised training logo in your course information.
