Do you have your USI yet? Hope so because you will need it from 1 January 2015.

This 10-digit number consists of letters and numbers and is used to link a student’s USI account to their training records held in the national training collection.

With the student’s permission, training organisations will be able to see their entire nationally recognised training record commencing with records collected in 2015.

If you don’t create your USI, the enrolment process will be much slower. Certificates can not be processed until a valid USI is provided to the Registered Training Organisation.

It is easy to do, simply visit the Department of Industry website at http://usi.gov.au/Pages/default.aspx and click on Create your USI.

Have a good look around the website to find out how your USI will help track your training.

You can create your USI at any time.
