Dear Students,

The AACDS head office will be closed from the 20th of December 2014 and will reopen on the 5th of January 2015. If you need any assistance, unless otherwise advised, your lecturer is your first point of call. If you have a matter of urgency, please email linda@aacds.edu.au.

AACDS would like to seize this opportunity to wish all of its students a wonderful Christmas and a prosperous new year.

Important Information for all Enrolled Students - Unique Student Identifier (USI)

From 1 January 2015 continuing students will need to provide us with a USI (Unique Student Identifier).

A student who is continuing study is a student who has already started their course in a previous year (and not yet completed it) and will continue studying after 1 January 2015.

A Unique Student Identifier (USI) is a reference number made up of numbers and letters that gives students access to their USI account. A USI will allow an individual's USI account to be linked to the National Vocational Education and Training (VET) Data Collection allowing an individual to see all of their training results from all providers including all completed training units and qualifications.

The USI will make it easier for students to find and collate their VET achievements into a single authenticated transcript. It will also ensure that students' VET records are not lost.

The USI will be is available online and at no cost to the student. This USI will stay with the student for life and be recorded with any nationally recognised VET course that is completed from when the USI comes into effect on 1 January 2015.

You can apply for your USI at http://usi.gov.au/create-your-USI/Pages/default.aspx. The application process only takes 5 minutes. It is compulsory for you to have a USI and we encourage you to apply for one as soon as possible and submit it to us on enquiries@aacds.edu.au
