USI Transcript Service Activation – Update
Trials of the USI Transcript Service and the USI Transcript Update Tool for RTOs will commence in December beginning with a Closed Trial involving a small number of RTOs and students who have volunteered to test the system.
The purpose of this Closed Trial is to provide an opportunity for students and RTOs to trial the USI Transcript Service and the Update Tool for the first time, and provide feedback and suggestions back to the USI Office.
The USI Transcript Update Tool will be accessible to RTOs during the Trial via the AVETMISS Validation Software (AVS). It will enable RTOs to modify training information on the USI Transcript, and to add any records which had previously been submitted to the national VET collection without a USI. RTOs who submit AVETMISS data directly to NCVER will already be registered to use AVS. Those submitting via State Training Authorities may not be registered and they will need to be registered to be able to use the Update Tool.
More information on the USI Transcript Update Tool will be available in the upcoming Bulletin next week.
During the Closed Trial, selected RTOs may be contacted if a student (participating in the Trial) identifies an error or omission within their Transcript which needs updating.
RTOs will be advised of the timing for a formal launch of the Transcript Service subject to a satisfactory outcome of the trial.
