Education Qualification Checks

Diploma Mills Warning:

A degree or diploma mill is an institution that offers substandard or fraudulent degrees in exchange for payment and very little else. Verifying that a candidate graduated from a diploma mill means as much as checking that the candidate paid for their certificate but are not necessary qualified as such. 

Education checks verify the candidates’ education claims directly with the registry office.
