VETDSS Requirements

Before you apply - here’s what you’ll need:

  • Email address It’s our primary way of communicating with you!

  • Unique Student Identifier (USI) We’ll explain below, but you’ll need ID documents to get one!

Student id

If you’ve been a student (or even APPLIED) at The Gordon before (even if it was AGES ago) you may already have a student ID. If you’re not sure, or have forgotten,  you can follow this link to retrieve it.


Introduced in 2015, the USI is a mandatory government requirement for all students studying accredited training and must be provided as part of your application. We can’t enrol you without it!
It provides you a secure online record of all your nationally recognised training throughout your life. If you don’t already have one, create one here

What now?

Once we’ve got all your information, you’ll receive log on details for our student management system (eCentral), where you can monitor all your applications, enrolments and communications. We’ll be in contact by email or text to let you know the next step. Call us 1300 954 371 or email us on if you have any questions!
