Welcome to Certn: Your Trusted Partner for Background Screening

Your Trusted Partner for Background Screening

Welcome to Certn

We are making changes as part of our ongoing efforts to bring the “Credence” and “Certn” brands together following the acquisition in 2022

As we merge the brands, we’re excited to bring you the same trusted service with enhanced speed and efficiency. This transformation combines British prestige with Canadian innovation, leveraging 30 years of experience for unparalleled global service.

What This Means for You

You’ll start receiving emails from our parent company, @certn.co, instead of @credence.co.uk. Rest assured, our services remain unchanged.

  • Enjoy faster, more flexible background checks 
  • An even better candidate experience
  • A broader range of background check services across North America and beyond.
