Do I need a Unique Student Identifier?

Since 1st January 2015, all students undertaking a Nationally Recognised Training course are required to obtain a Unique Student Identifier (also known as USI).

The USI system serves as a database that collects the history of any Vocational Education and Training (VET) training you have undertaken after 1st January 2015, where training organisations are required to report about your training.

A USI is required to complete your enrolment at Kenvale College.

How do I obtain a USI?

It’s simple and free to create your USI. Before you get started, make sure you prepare a form of identification, for example:

  • Current Driver’s License
  • Medicare Card
  • Immicard
  • Australian Passport
  • Non-Australian Passport with Australian Visa (for International Student)

You are able to access your USI account online anytime from your smartphone, tablet or computer. If you would like to understand more about USI, here is a video created by The Department of Industry, Innovation and Science explaining USI.

For more details, please visit the Department of Industry USI website here.


Thank you for inviting us - we really did appreciate it. I must say I was really impressed by the Briar Ridge team - one of them (… Aiden) did a really great job explaining who they were, what they were about etc., and really took the time to give us the background on the person behind it all (Gwyn Olsen). He'd clearly immersed himself in the project, and I think she'd have been really pleased if she'd seen that. Happy to reach out and tell her so if you think it would help pave the way for future events.

I just wanted to express thanks and congratulations to all at Kenvale for the magnificent lunch provided on Thursday.

I have been to many hatted restaurants this year and can honestly say that they would have struggled to produce such fantastic dishes.

The lunch was a credit to your students and your staff.  It would be a privilege to enjoy another visit next year.

Best wishes to your graduating students for success in their career and to your staff to continue to guide students to reach such a high standard.
