enrolling into a HRD Course online

You're on this page because:

  • you've been sent to this page to enrol into a HRD course
  • you're enrolling into a HRD online course, or
  • the course you're enrolling into has an online component.

Don't enrol into a course without first contacting HRD administration.

If your course is NOT accredited training, choose NON–ACCREDITED course enrolment

Complete your enrolment by following the process below

1. Collect your documents

You must have evidence of your identity and citizenship. Have ready at least one of the following documents and information to help complete your enrolment:

  • Current Australian/NZ passport, Australian driver’s licence, identity card or Medicare card or other accepted documentation to verify your identity (eg full birth certificate).

Bring photographic proof of identity to your first class.

2. Complete the online Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) assessment

When you are enrolling into nationally recognised training you must complete an LLN assessment.

This is an online reading, writing and numeracy assessment and it must be completed before enrolment can be finalised.

Your LLN result will be used to help HRD identify any educational support needs that you may have.

Access the LLN check for your course by selecting the course link below.
Follow the instructions to complete and submit the LLN skills review.

(An LLN check is not required for non-accredited training.)

HRD will contact you in 3-5 working days of receiving your LLN review ONLY if your LLN skills may be a barrier to you successfully participating in training and assessment.

3. Create your Unique Student Identifier (USI)

It’s a government requirement that you have a USI to enrol in a vocational education program. The USI is a reference number that will give you access to an online record of all of your recognised training and qualifications.

  • To create a USI you’ll need your ID ready, such as a Medicare card, current passport, full birth certificate or driver’s licence.
  • Once you’ve created your USI, make a note of it as you’ll need to provide it as part of the enrolment process.

(A USI is not required for non-accredited training. However, HRD recommends that you get one as it helps smooth administration.)

4. Read the HRD induction information

It is important that all Registered Training Organisations ensure that learners are adequately informed about the services they are to receive, their rights and obligations, and the RTO’s responsibilities.

You must read the induction before enrolling into any course.
