To create a USI, you will need to provide personal details and contact information. The information provided will help in avoiding the creation of duplicate USIs and ensure your training records are linked to your USI account.
Your personal details include:
- date of birth
- place and country of birth
Your contact information includes:
- email address
- mobile phone
- home phone (optional)
- postal address
You can access and update your records in the USI Registry System at any time. You will need to provide a new form of ID to update your personal details. No proof of ID is required to update contact information.
Training organisations can also update your records in the USI Registry System, if you have given them permission.
Important: Personal details entered must match those shown on your form of ID.
Note: If you have given permission to a training organisation to view and/or update your USI account but you do not want them to see your contact information, you can select 'Hide Contact Details' in the USI Registry System.
Enter your name into the first, middle and last sections as shown on your form of ID. Do not use nicknames or abbreviated names.
Note: You must enter your middle name/s if shown on your form of ID.
Enter the name in which you prefer to be known. This may include a nickname, abbreviated name, or any other name not shown on your form of ID.
If only one name is shown on your form of ID, when creating a USI select 'No, I only have one name’.
Your date of birth
Enter your date of birth as shown on your form of ID in the format Day/Month/Year.
Your place and country of birth
Country of birth
Enter your country of birth as the country where you were born. If the name of your country of birth has changed, enter the current name.
Town/city of birth
Enter your town/city of birth as the town/city where you were born.
If the name of your town/city of birth has changed, enter the current name.
Gender is part of a person's personal and social identity referring to the way a person feels, presents, and is known within their community.
Gender options on your USI account include M (male), F (female), or X (indeterminate/intersex/unspecified). You do not need to provide proof of your gender.
For more information on gender go to the Australian Guidelines on the Recognition of Sex and Gender.
