You may have already seen USI Transcripts as part of the documentation that job applicants present as evidence of their nationally recognised training.
Since 1 January 2015, all students undertaking nationally recognised training have been required to have a USI and, since 22 May 2017, students have been able to access their national training record online in the form of a USI Transcript. Students are able to email their USI Transcript to you or provide you with a printed copy. Students cannot give you access to view their USI Transcript online.
The USI Transcript enables Australian businesses to get a better understanding of their employees’ level of training and reduce the unnecessary and wasteful retraining that sometimes results from lost credentials. The benefits of this initiative will accrue over time as more training records are added to individual transcripts.
Although the USI Transcript Service will have many benefits, it will not replace the qualifications or documentation issued by training organisations. A USI Transcript will not include training prior to 1 January 2015 or very recent training, therefore, it needs to be read in conjunction with other evidence of training.
Students can choose which training appears on their USI Transcript. If the heading of the USI Transcript includes the word ‘Partial’ it means that it does not include information about some qualifications or training.
