what all the steps are included ?
A good background checking company of would usually follow the following process for verification of degree certificates from colleges / universities:
- The verification must be done from the source i.e., the college or university itself.
- An audit trail of the verification process would normally be maintained. This audit trail would normally ensure that at a minimum all communications and documents sent to and received from Universities, Colleges and Institutions for confirmation of qualifications, certifications and memberships are retained on file.
- Verification against a periodically updated list of fake universities, colleges and institutes.
Very often colleges and universities do not respond promptly. Therefore there is a need to undertake personal follow up and over a period of time build relationships with the office of the Registrar, in order to get prompt responses - which becomes a differentiator for background checking companies because of a quicker turn around time.
Some Background checking companies do not have an all India presence. These companies try and cover areas where they are not located through partner firms, who do the ground work on behalf of the background checking company.
