You have two study options to choose from. You can study on-campus (classroom learning) or by correspondence (home study learning-a blended model).

From 1 January 2015, all students participating in Nationally Recognised Training in Australia are required by the Australian government to have a Unique Student Identifier, or USI.
This includes students completing an apprenticeship, skill set, certificate or diploma course.
A USI gives you access to your online USI account and will contain all of your nationally recognised training records and results from 1 January 2015 onwards, stored in the one place. You therefore can access your results and the details of all courses you have completed.
When applying for a job or enrolling in further study, you will often need to provide your training records and results. One of the main benefits of the USI is that you will have easy access to your training records and results throughout your life.
It is free and easy for you to create your own USI online at usi.gov.au.
If you do not have a USI you can obtain this prior to commencing your studies. It is important to understand that this is a requirement set by the Government and we are unable to issue your qualification to you on completion of your studies unless you have a USI. Click here to apply for a USI - it only takes 3 minutes. Have your driver's licence or other ID handy. You are given a USI on the spot.
