From January 1st 2015 the Australian Government launched Unique Student Identifiers (USI) which will be required by each person who undertake Nationally Recognised Training.

You will need it to enrol (or re-enrol) at WA Skills Training.

A USI is your individual education number for life. It also gives you an online record of your VET training undertaken in Australia.

If you struggle to remember your number, we have your back WA Skills Training can issue USI cards for $10. Just ask the front desk!

STEP 3: Visit and click on ‘Create a USI’.

STEP 4: Agree to the terms and conditions and follow the steps.
