What is a USI?
A Unique Student Identifier (USI) is an initiative by the Australian Government Department of Industry, that comes into effect on 1 January 2015. A USI is a reference number that will give students access to a USI account, to view their training records which are held in the National Vocational Education and Training (VET) Data Collection.

The USI is available online at no cost to the student. Once a student has registered their USI, it will stay with them for life and be recorded with any nationally recognised VET course that is completed from 1 January 2015.

Who needs a USI and why?
All students studying nationally recognised Vocational Education and Training courses in Australia from 1 January 2015 will be required to have a (USI). Training providers must record a USI for all students under Commonwealth legislation and the conditions of registration for training organisations. A valid USI, verified by Baseline Training Pty Ltd (RTO No. 110029), will be required to be able to issue a statement of attainment or qualification to a student undertaking nationally recognised training.

How do trainees get a USI?
It is free to register a USI, and only takes a few minutes online at www.usi.gov.au  An employer may wish to assist their employee through this process. The trainee must give Baseline Training Pty Ltd (RTO No. 110029) their USI when they enrol for Nationally Recognised Training to be delivered from 1 January 2015, as well as provide Baseline Training Pty Ltd (RTO No. 110029) with access to their USI account for verification that their USI is correct.

What if a trainee does not have a USI, or has not had it verified?
Baseline Training Pty Ltd (RTO No. 110029) is prohibited by law to issue your Statement of Attainment or Qualification unless we have verified your USI. Baseline Training Pty Ltd (RTO No. 110029) may accept the trainee’s enrolment, deliver the training & accept payment from the client or trainee, but must not issue the Statement of Attainment until the trainee’s USI has been verified as correct.
