NEWS ON USI EXEMPTION for 2016:

Following an AECP initiative to meet with the Minister for Vocational Education and Skills in October, further amendment has been made to the Student Identifiers (Exemptions) Instrument. This means that RTOs can continue to issue a Statement of Attainment for courses of one day or less where the student has not obtained a USI.

Throughout the first half of 2016 there will be further review of VET regulatory requirements. AECP will be making strong recommendations for enduring solutions to be in place by 2017.

We hope you are all enjoying a safe and happy summer break!
