Every year, many Australians build and sharpen their skills by undertaking nationally recognised training. A USI ensures that student records are not lost, and allows students to find and collate their VET achievements into a single, authenticated transcript. Further to this, keeping accurate, accessible training records will allow government to target the skills needed by Australian industry. This is important for Australia’s businesses and future prosperity.
This year, a USI is needed for every student before a training organisation can issue a statement of attainment for any nationally recognised training. A USI is now a part of meeting VET data collection and reporting requirements.
Employers delivering nationally recognised training in 2015 are also encouraged to get their staff to create their USI now. It will make your enrolments easier and your reporting also more streamlined.
For students, having a USI ready at enrolment will save delays in getting your certificate or statement of attainment at the end of your training. So, the key is to become USI-ready as early as possible.
Students, if you’re doing any nationally recognised training this year, create your USI now. You’ll save yourself time by having it ready for enrolment day. You’ll also be on the way to having a lifetime record of all your training that you can access online anytime and anywhere.
