Education & Credential Verifications

Fast and Effective Candidate Education Checks.

Educational qualifications can paint a strong candidate picture, but can you be sure the image being portrayed is truly accurate? Education Verification is a simple and effective way to check the honesty and suitability of your candidates.

Education Verifications authenticate candidates’ academic history, industry qualifications, and professional membership claims directly with registrars and administration offices, many of whom know us well. We compare claims made by your candidate with information on the official files and alert you of inconsistencies.

A Secure and Reliable Measure of Honesty

  • Forgery-proof results delivered securely online
  • Unbiased, unaltered records obtained directly from the registrar’s office
  • Knowledge of abundant diploma mills and phony education institutions
  • A consistent and auditable process
  • Typical turnaround time of 3 to 5 business days

Avoiding Deception With Education Verifications From Sterling

Each year, thousands of job candidates fabricate their education history, in a wide variety of ways. Modern technology has given rise to Diploma Mills, which issue degrees based on “life experience” or simply for cash. By going directly to registrars, we are able to raise a red flag of concern and give you a reliable picture of each candidate.
