USI – Unique Student Identifier

USI – Unique Student Identifier


A USI is your lifelong education number – you only need to create it once.

They are a requirement for anyone undertaking vocational training, whether it be a single unit or a Diploma.

First Aid training also requires that you have a Unique Student Identifier before participating in training.

We cannot provide your number to you. If you do not have one, you will need to apply for one yourself on the official government USI website, below.


Already have a USI?

If you have undertaken any VET training since 2015, you probably already have a USI. Find it now.

Identification requirements

You need one form of identification to create Your Unique Student Identifier


The whole process takes less than 5 minutes


Sharing your number with education or training providers

As a Nationally recognized training provider, we will need to collect and verify your Unique Student Identifier.

We obtain this number from your enrollment form.

Please ensure that the name on your course enrollment is identical to the name you used to create your Unique Student Identifier.

For example, If you included your middle name (or initial) on your application, you must do the same on your course enrollment form.
