From 1 January 2015 all students undertaking nationally recognised training delivered by a registered training organisation will need to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI).

 

When you create your USI number, you will have a USI account. Your USI account will contain all of your nationally recognised training records and results completed by your from 1st January 2015 onwards. This will make it easier for you if you need to confirm your qualifications for a new job or if you wish to start your studies with another training organisation.

 

If you do not have a USI, then NSW Business College cannot issue you with testamurs, Records or Results or Statements of Attainment.

 

It is NSW Business College’s Policy that all new students must supply the College with their USI on or before their orientation day.
