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.
The ABN listed in TGA must be the same one linked in RAM and registered with the Australian Business Register. If an organisation has changed their ABN recently, they need to update their TGA details.
Where organisations have a single ABN and multiple OrgCodes Machine-to-Machine credentials can be used.
- Student Management System
Have a Student Management System that has incorporated the USI Technical Services Contract.
- Production Device AUSkey
Have a Machine-to-Machine credentials 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.
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.
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 Machine-to-Machine credentials, 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.
