I don’t have a USI number what is this? And what do I need to do?
As of 1st of January 2016 the Government brought in legislation stating that anyone who undertook accredited training will be required to enter a USI number that matches their identity.
A USI number stands for Unique Student Identification number; and it’s a combination of 10 alpha/numeric digits. You will only be required to do the registration once so it’s advisable to keep the number handy perhaps print it out and stick on the back of your Medicare card.
Having a USI works in your favour as it doesn’t allow for non-accredited training to be registered against this number and somewhere down the track it may form part of an electronic resume where a potential employer may be able to look at what courses you have attended and what’s current and what’s expired
To get a USI you can either follow the prompts that are asked of you as you enroll onto your booked course or you can register by going to www.usi.gov.au; you will be required to ensure your identity matches your form of ID such as your driver’s license or Medicare card.
If you have changed your name since you registered; please click on the following link https://www.usi.gov.au/faqs/my-name-has-changed-how-do-i-change-my-personal-details and follow the prompts
If you have already registered for a USI but can’t remember it please click on the following link https://portal.usi.gov.au/student/ForgottenUsi and again follow the prompts asked of you
