If you have not yet obtained a USI you can apply for it directly at https://www.usi.gov.au/students/get-a-usi on a computer or mobile device.
You may already have a USI. You may have had one created for you by a training organisation you have enrolled with in the past, or you may have one that you created a while ago and have simply forgotten about.
You only ever need one USI. Just like a Tax File Number, it is unique to you, and is yours for life.
You may already have a USI if you undertook any nationally recognised training since 01/01/2015, which could include training at work, completed a first aid course or RSA (Responsible Service of Alcohol) course, have a white card, or studied at a TAFE or training organisation.
It is important that you try to find your USI before you attempt to create a new one. This will make sure that the training records generated are correct. You should not have more than one USI.

Recognition predominantly comes in two forms: RCC and RPL.
The Recognition of Current Competence (RCC) process recognises what you have already learnt from other courses/studies (including courses at school or college, through adult education classes or training programs at work). This type of recognition is known as a Credit Transfer.
A Credit transfer is where direct credit may be awarded for previously completed formal training/assessment. Certified copies of all documentation supporting the claim must be provided within 14 days from enrolment. (E.g. original result notices, certificates, and record of training and contents of the course). Please note; CT’s may in some cases reduce course fees, however; submissions requesting Credit Transfers must be received within 14 days from enrolment for reductions to be considered. The RTO will be able to provide you with a quote prior to enrolment should you be unsure. Should you choose to complete duplicate training with another provider throughout your course, no fee reductions are available, however credit for that unit will be considered.
The Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process recognises what you have already learnt from your life and work experiences.
Both processes are referred to as ‘Recognition’ and allow you to apply for credit for the knowledge and skills you have, by measuring these acquired competencies against the course you intend to complete.
