In order to issue the certification, you will need to have completed the prior reading and associated quiz and have provided your USI (Unique Student Identifier) number see below for more information. USI numbers must be supplied prior to the completion of the training course.

Failure to provide a USI number within the allotted time may result in a delay in issuing your completion certificate. (T&C)

USI Requirements

In line with new government regulations, from January 1, 2018, all students undertaking a nationally recognised training course need to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). USI’s only need be created once, and the number generated is yours for life. So, if you are already studying at college or university it is likely that you may already have a USI that you can use. Applications for a USI take less than 5 minutes and can be completed HERE.
