USI requirements

If you’re undertaking any vocational training (not just first aid), it’s now a government requirement that all students have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). This number is required to enrol in any of our courses. It is a number unique to you – the training equivalent of a tax file number. 

Unfortunately, while there’s a lot of things that First Aid Courses Tasmania provides you with when you enrol in our training, a USI isn’t one of those. Just like a tax file number, this is something you have to get for yourself.

Fortunately, the process is free and very straightforward – you need to head to the government USI website. You’ll be able to register a brand new USI for yourself or enter your existing one to look up your information.

Covid-19 Precautions

First Aid Courses Tasmania works hard to ensure the safety and welfare of all our course participants. We strive to follow best practice principles for Covid safety and ask participants to do the same. To attend our courses, you must be willing to sign in at the beginning of the course, follow current government guidelines for social distancing, and in some circumstances, use personal protective equipment (PPE) such as disposable gloves or face masks.

What does it cost?

The cost of participating in the Provide First Aid in a Remote or Isolated Site, complete with all training materials and certificates, is only $180. At some times, this price can vary even lower with our daily deals. And of course, if you find an equivalent course out there on the market for a lower price, we’ll beat it by 10%!
