FAQs

Certn verifies the licenses and credentials held by the candidate to confirm the candidate’s certification status, the date of issuance, and any specific conditions or restrictions to ensure the candidate is permitted to practice in their respective field. Credential verification may also include confirming the candidate’s membership in professional associations relevant to their industry.

What’s verified as part of credential verifications depends on the industry or sector, but the key aspects of credential verification are certification validation, licence verification, and professional association or membership verification.

All that’s needed is the candidate’s name and email or phone number to start the verification.

Candidates will be asked to supply credential details, and potentially, proof of certification.

The process for the candidate is simple. Here’s how it works:

  1. Send your checks to the candidate via email or phone number.
  2. Your candidate completes their background check online.
  3. While the verification check is in progress, the verification team will reach out to collect credential documentation as needed.

That’s it! Once the candidate submits their background check and documentation, the status will be updated in the Certn dashboard.

Turnaround times depend on the responsiveness of the sources. Certn’s in-house Verifications team initiates the process within one business day.

Our customers love our ID verification checks

Fantastic service from our account manager and his team. They are responsive and easy to get hold of, clear in their communication, helpful and friendly, keep on top of the screening process and do a great job. I’m so happy that I moved to Certn Credence.
HR Administrator SEB London
I’d definitely recommend Certn. I’ve used 3-4 alternative background screening companies before, and they do not compare at all to the service level provided by Certn.
Human Resources Manager Orchard Global Asset Management
We have been using Certn Credence for our background screening requirements for over 2 years now and I have to say in comparison with other organisations we have used in the past they are a breath of fresh air and a pleasure to deal with and I am very happy with the service they provide.
