What is a Unique Student Identifier (USI)?

If you study any Nationally Recognised Training in Australia, you are required to have a USI. Your USI links to an online account that contains all your training records and results (transcripts) that you have completed since 2015.

When applying for a job or enrolling in further study, you will often need to provide your training records and results (transcript). The benefit of the USI is the ability to provide learners with easy access to their training records at any time.

You can access your USI account online from your computer, tablet or smart phone.

If you do not already have a USI, go to on a computer or mobile device.

Note: A USI must be supplied to CEPUTEC during enrolment so that a Nationally Recognised Qualification or Statement of Attainment can be issued to you.
