ATI requires all eligible students to create a Unique Student Identifier (USI) number and provide it to us prior to enrolment. If you require assistance, we can apply on your behalf. Please contact our Student Support team on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1300 153 276 if you require any further assistance.
Creating a Unique Student Identifier (USI) will only take a few minutes and it is free. You only need to create a USI once and it will stay with you for life. After you create your USI, you then need to give it to each training organisation you train with when you enrol.
At ATI students are able to have their competency from prior learning and work experience recognised in this qualification through the RPL and Credit transfer process.
Students who have successfully completed previous training and who have achieved relevant units will be eligible for credit transfer. Students enrolled in a government subsidised qualification or accredited course can apply for recognition in that qualification at no additional charge and, under NSW Smart and Skilled may be eligible for a reduced student fee based on recognition granted.
For further information on how to apply for an RPL or Credit Transfer please refer to ASTAR Training Institute's key policies.
ASTAR Training Institute offers various options of enrolling in our courses which include fee for service or accessing State Funding through the Smart and Skilled program.
