AUSTRALIAN ESI SKILLS PASSPORT
The Australian ESI Skills passport has been rolled out in the VESI in 2010 and will replace the VESI Passport.
Further information including the Administration Rules regarding the administration of the Australian ESI Skills Passport can be found at www.esipassport.com.au
In 2010 forums were held for both service providers and training providers to the VESI to provide an update on the Australian ESI Skils passport and to inform of changes to our system. Please click here to access the powerpoint presentation delivered to Victorian Service Providers and Training Providers 24th March 2010.
The Australian ESI Skills Passport has been reprinted and is now in circulation as Version 2 May 2012, consequently there will be two versions of the passport in use in VESI.

Mapping guide for Passport entries
A mapping guide for passport entries has been created for the two versions of the ESI Skills Passport to provide assistance with determining which section of the Passport to record initial and refresher training, authorisations and Induction entries. Please click the appropriate version of the passport to access the mapping guide. Version 1 / Version 2
The VESI passport has now been replaced by the new national passport system introduced in 2010. However, as training, authority and induction history is recorded in the VESI Passport, there will be a need for field workers to hold onto these as well as the new Australian ESI Skills passport until all refresher training has been updated. Recognising that this could take up to 3 years an alternative approach is for an employer to organise for the field workers training report to be printed on their company letterhead and attached to the new Passport. The information regarding the VESI Passport will remain on this site for up to a three year period as a reference.
