Students attending accredited training need a USI Number

From 1 January 2015 all students who undertake nationally recognised training delivered by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) will need to provide the training provider with their Unique Student Identifier (USI) number. The USI number gives students access to their online USI account, which is made up of ten numbers and letters. It will look something like this: 3AW88YH9U5. The USI account will contain all of a student’s nationally recognised training records and results from 1 January 2015 onwards. When applying for a job or enrolling in further study, students will often need to provide their training records and results. One of the main benefits of the USI is that students will have easy access to their training records and results throughout their life. Students can access their USI account online from a computer, tablet, or smartphone anywhere and any time.

Who needs a USI and why?

If you are a new or continuing student undertaking nationally recognised training, you require a USI to receive your qualification or statement of attainment. If you don’t have a USI, you will not receive your qualification or statement of attainment. Please note that should you not provide your USI on the day of training, we will be unable to issue a certificate for the completed course. 

How do I get a USI?

Log onto the Australian government website and follow the prompts at

If you forget your USI Number

You can locate a forgotten USI number easily. Simply google “I forgot my USI” and follow the prompts from The service will then email or text your USI number to you.

Individual exemptions

Individuals who have a genuine personal objection to being assigned a USI will be able to apply for an exemption to the Student Identifiers Registrar. Students who do not provide a USI or who have an exemption granted under the Student Identifiers Act 2014 will not have their training outcome recorded on their USI account, and it will not be available in future years as part of the authenticated USI transcript service.

International Students

Students who are enrolled with us but who are studying overseas are not required to acquire a USI. If you are an international student studying offshore and do not intend on coming to Australia to do your study, you do not need a USI. However, if you are an Australian ex-pat or resident student studying offshore with an Australian training organisation, you will need a USI. If you are an international student who will be studying in Australia, you will require a USI. All international students in Australia will have been issued with an Australian Visa. Once you have arrived in Australia, your visa will be activated, and you will be able to apply for a USI.

Why is the course I completed not on the USI transcript service yet?

The USI transcript service is provided by the Australian Government, not by International Paramedic College. They ask us to provide student information to them once a year. We provide that information in January as required.
Please read the information they provide on their site titled “When will my training appear”.
