Unique Student Identifier

(USI) What is it and how do you get one?

What is a Unique Student Identifier (USI) number?

Your USI is a reference number made up of numbers and letters. This number creates a secure online record of all your nationally recognised training records and results from 2015. It is an individual education number for life and can be easily accessed at any time online from a computer, tablet, or smart phone.

Why do I need a USI?

It is a government requirement that all students studying in Australia must have a USI. Lexis Training is a recognised training provider, so all our students need to have their own USI if they are enrolling in nationally recognised training for the first time, continuing with or completing nationally recognised training.

What are the benefits of a USI?

  • Students will have a complete record of their Australian VET achievements from a single and secure online source.
  • You will be able to confirm your qualifications to employers when seeking for a job.
  • Training organisations will assess the student’s prerequisites quickly.
