Unique Student Identifier
Every student with PEAK Training will need to create a Unique Student Identifier (USI). Or if you already have one, let us know on your enrolment form.
Your USI will help keep your training records and results together in an online account controlled by you. By having a USI you will be able to access your training records and results (or transcript) whenever you need them. For example for a new employer. Your USI can be accessed online from your computer, tablet or smartphone.
To obtain your USI, please go to www.usi.gov.au and create an account.
PEAK Training recognises all Australian Qualifications Framework accreditations and Statements of Attainment issued by other Registered Training Organisations.
Recognition of prior learning may also be undertaken. Learners need to gather evidence of their prior learning and experience to enable PEAK Training to assess their compatibility with the current educational requirements.
