Unique Student Identifier (USI)
As of the 1st January 2015 it is a government requirement that all students (and continuing students) have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). This USI must be provided to your RTO prior to issuance of your certificate at the completion of your course.
Subsequently RETS requires that you create a USI and supply to us as part of the enrolment process. When we have your USI we will verify it against your name and date of birth details you have provided to us on your enrolment form. After the 1/1/15 if we do not have this USI we are unable to issue you with a certificate on completion of your course.
Attached is a Fact Sheet with further information on the USI, and below instructions to access a USI – it is not difficult and will only take you a few minutes.
