Certn’s background check turnaround time is one of our favourite features. It allows us to get back to the candidate within a day or 2 after the report comes back to us. We have used Certn to have our current employees obtain a background check as we had a lot of employees who didn’t provide one upon hiring. Certn has been immensely helpful. We got 15 employees screened and checked in a matter of 30 minutes.

We use Certn to background check all of our current employees as our Head Office recommended completing screening for specific commercial client jobs. We use it for a very basic reason, but overall, it was super easy to navigate. Certn was quick, efficient, and cost-affordable for us.
