To use the USI web services in the production environment, a training organisation must be authenticated and authorised to access the USI Registry System. To do so a training organisation must meet the following requirements.
- Training.gov.au (TGA)
Be listed on training.gov.au (TGA). The USI Registry System uses the organisation ABN and OrgCode details as listed on TGA for authentication purposes.
Check that the ABN listed in TGA is the same one linked to their AUSkey registered with the Australian Business Register. Production connection will fail if an ABN is not the same.
If an organisation has changed their ABN recently, they need to contact their Regulator to update their TGA details.
Where organisations have a single ABN and multiple OrgCodes, note that:
a single Device AUSkey can be used.
An access form needs to be submitted for each RTO, as defined by OrgCode requesting access to web services and accepting the Terms and Conditions of Use.
- Student Management System
Have a Student Management System that has incorporated the USI Technical Services Contract.
- Production Device AUSkey
Have a Production Device AUSkey installed in their SMS infrastructure.
- USI Registry online access form
Complete the USI Registry online access form to request access to use web services and accept the terms and conditions of use.
Organisations must read and understand the Terms and Conditions of using the USI Registry System.
Other VET related organisations wishing to use web services, must also have a Device AUSkey, register themselves with the USI Registrar so they can be issued an OrgCode which must be supplied as a part of all web service calls, and agree to the terms and conditions of use.
