FAQs

Education verification verifies the educational background in a candidate’s résumé or job application against information in institutional databases and records. It involves verifying the educational history, enrolment dates or completion dates, and the attainment of degrees, diplomas, and/or certificates, as available.

Education verification verifies the educational history, enrolment dates or completion dates, and the attainment of degrees, diplomas, and/or certificates, as available.

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

Candidates will be asked to supply education details, and potentially, education documentation.

Certn’s Verifications team verifies information submitted by candidates using a combination of automated and manual processes, depending on the type of information being vetted. The process for the candidate is simple. Here’s how it works:

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

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

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

Our customers love our comprehensive background 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.
