Unique Student Identifier
As of 1 January 2015, every student studying in Australia must have a USI number. Your USI number will remain with you for life and will collate information on your VET achievements regardless of where you study. Students can create a USI number by logging onto www.usi.gov.au, prior to attending training or they may authorise Djaringo to create a USI number on their behalf.
