What is a USI?

A Unique Student Identifier (USI) is a unique code that holds a record of all your training and qualifications acquired in Australia. This code is permanent and unique to you only.

Why do I need a USI?

Every participant - new or continuing - is required to supply EIM with their USI. The USI is required at the time of enrolment. We are unable to accept enrolments without this code or notification of an exemption. The purpose of the USI is to enable the collection and storage of your records of participation in vocational education and training on a central database, allowing you easy access to your records.
