    Case Studies

    We Don’t Compromise On Our Training


    Earlier this year I performed CPR on my husband. I could not believe how quickly I remembered the timing and because I felt so confident I did not panic.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is a USI?

    The Unique Student Identifier or USI is a reference number made up of 10 numbers and letters that:

    • creates a secure online record of your recognised training and qualifications gained in Australia, even from different training organisations
    • will give you access to your training records and transcripts (available in mid 2016)
    • can be accessed online, anytime and anywhere
    Do I need a USI?

    The Student Identifiers Act in 2014 requires that all students enrolled in nationally recognised training provide their Registered Training Organisation (RTO) with their USI. This is applicable to all HLT and VIC units.

    How long is my course valid?

    Provide First Aid, Asthma and Anaphylaxis are valid for 3 years. It is recommended by the ARC that Provide CPR is updated annually
