Unique Student Identification Number

From January 1st, 2015 all people who undertake any VET training ( Vocational Education and Training) which includes all of the nationally recognised courses we offer, will require a UNIQUE STUDENT IDENTITY number (USI). Any training undertaken must be accompanied by this USI number BEFORE the course is undertaken. You will be required to add this number to your registration form so you will need to apply for this number PRIOR to your training by visiting www.usi.gov.au and clicking on the box that says CREATE A USI and follow the prompts. You will only be required to do this once. Please keep a record of this number as you will be required to give this number everytime you complete any nationally recognised training.

 

WHY? This is an excerpt from the USI website:

 

From 1 January 2015, millions of Australians can build an online record of their VET attainments and qualifications. Every new and existing VET student will be issued a unique student identifier. This number is retained by a student throughout his or  her lifetime. By gaining greater control over their VET records, student access to information for course enrolment will improve. Establishing credit for recognised

prior learning will be simpler, and it will be easier for students to show employers this information during interviews.

 

If you would like more information, please visit the website www.usi.gov.au .

 

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU AND YOUR TRAINING WITH TOP OF THE RANGE TRAINING?

You will need an USI before you train with us commencing from 1st January 2015. You need to apply only once for this number. You will need to provide it to us on your registration form so you will need to apply PRIOR to your training. Store it somewhere safe and each time you do training with us or another organisation that offers nationally accredited training you will need to supply this USI each time you register.

  You MUST supply us with your USI number ( Unique Student Identification Number). Without this number, we are unable to award you, your certificate. No refund will be given for failure to supply an USI number.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions
