VET transcripts

Keeping national training records together

USI account holders can access their VET outcomes online in the form of an authenticated USI VET transcript.

The authenticated VET transcript draws on information from the national VET collection database managed by the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER). 

The information is downloaded at that point in time and is not stored against your USI account. The VET transcript will not show :

  • any training completed before 2015
  • other forms of training such as higher education.

Nationally recognised training organisations use the symbol to the right on their training certificates. View training organisations and courses on the myskills website.

VET transcripts can be used:

  • as a credit transfer or demonstrating pre-requisites for further training 
  • as a backup if the original documentation is lost and cannot be replaced 
  • to provide qualifications to employers and licensing bodies 
  • to reduce unnecessary retraining that can result from lost credentials. 

USI account holders can view, download, or share VET transcripts with: 

  • Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) who have been granted permission by the account holder and have access to the USI Registry System
  • third parties, such as employers and licensing bodies, who have been provided with an electronic or hard copy by the account holder (view only).

Sharing a VET transcript

USI account holders can share a full copy or an extract of their VET transcript. Sharing is a convenient and secure way to prove qualifications and demonstrate pre-requisites for further training.

Sharing an extract of a VET transcript allows account holders to:

  • choose which achievements to display
  • remove training or achievements that are not needed for a particular verification process.

The VET transcript includes a clickable link and a QR code for accessing the online record from either an electronic or hard copy. When using the QR code, the name and document number will populate automatically to ensure accessing the record is quick and easy for third parties.

Inaccurate or incomplete VET transcripts
