The course is funded by the Queensland Government’s Certificate 3 Guarantee program.Total cost of the course is $130 – this is a subsidised rate and includes all course units.

- obtain a unique student identity number (USI) – more information below.
UNIQUE STUDENT IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (USI)
As of the 1st January 2015 anyone undertaking VET training (Vocational Education and Training), which includes all nationally recognised courses we offer, requires a unique student identity number (USI). Any accredited training we offer must be accompanied by this number and therefore you need to apply for this number PRIOR to commencing your studies with us. You need only apply once for your USI number and we strongly recommend that you record and store your USI number in a safe place.
It’s easy to create your own USI. You will need at least one form of identification such as a drivers licence, Medicare card, Australian passport, Immigration card etc. Please visit www.usi.gov.au and follow the prompts.
- WHY DO I NEED A USI?
Your unique student number stays with you for life, so if you study with different training providers, access to your training records and results (transcripts) can be obtained whenever you need them. Once obtained, you can access your USI online from your computer, tablet or smart phone, giving you access to your training records and results at your fingertips (www.usi.gov.au)
- WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU WHEN ENROLLING IN ACCREDITED TRAINING WITH CARERS QUEENSLAND INC?
You will need a USI before you train with us. We will require your USI number to be placed on your enrolment form. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
