Important News for all students - New... Unique Student Identifier (USI)

From the 1st of January 2015, all persons wishing to undertake nationally recognized training with a training provider must have and supply to the training provider, their own Unique Student Identifier (Number) "USI" . 

This is a requirement set out by the Australian government and will include Certificate 1 - 5, Vocational Diploma Level courses, apprenticeships, Units, or undertaking VCAL or   VET. 

It also applies regardless of if you are a "New" student, or a student continuing training into 2015.

At Active TEC, we understand that this process may be difficult for some to manage on their own, therefore we would like to advise that our staff will assist students, enrolled in our courses to obtain their USI.
