Oliv is reporting the following fail: “Unique Student Identifier: SHORT for Client ID: 10241 is invalid. A valid USI must be supplied”

Oliv has not updated their validation rules to the 2017 AVETMISS Reporting Standards. AVETMISS has changed the USI field from a Warning to an Error for 2017 data. NCVER added export values ‘INTOFF’ and ‘SHORT’ to the USI field so that exempt students are able to be lodged.

onCourse will autogenerate these codes for your exports based on the student’s enrolment information. You do not need to enter these codes in the USI field.

  • SHORT is auto calculated when the class duration is less than two days and the student has not supplied a USI.
  • INTOFF is auto calculated when the student reports their address while studying as being in a country other than Australia and has not supplied a USI.

The Smart and Skilled ACE Provider Operating Guidelines 1/7/2016 – 30/6/2017 Section 14 Reporting Training Activity Data “The ACE Provider must submit AVETMISS 7.0 compliant data for all training activity including non-accredited (VET and non-VET) via the Department’s OLiV application until further notice.”
