Identifying ‘fake’ education credentials to ensure the right skills

Table of Contents

With the competition spiralling high for lucrative jobs, candidates tend to fake their educational credentials and achievements to portray the right fit for lucrative jobs. Many candidates produce certificates for full-time courses when they have pursued a distance learning program. Many others, quote a different program having completed a different course. To top it up, many candidates have been found to produce degrees from fake universities/colleges, some of which are not authorized to issue certificates to the students and some which do not even exist!In the past 11 years of a background screening, we have found multiple reasons for discrepancies in education checks. To combat issues to do with fake certificates/degrees, fake establishments/institutions, incomplete student information, and other administrative hassles, initiatives were stepped up towards education verification by employers and other verifiers.

A university in Kochi illustrates the significance of automation in managing alumni records and keep them available. Soon, academic degrees and certificates issued by Sanskrit University will be available digitally for verification. The initiative will go a long way in checking the spread of fake degrees.

It is the beginning to get more and more automation into the process. Another welcome step is how degrees obtained through online examinations conducted by universities offering open or distance learning will not be considered valid, as India’s higher education regulator says rules don’t allow such tests.

This step is imperative to discourage cybercrimes to a large extent. Many such initiatives are being undertaken to revolutionize the way education check is conducted and transform the old rigid processes of verifying academic credentials.

How To Verify the Education Credentials?

A new online service has been launched to check academic fraud. Using this service, anyone can access and verify the authenticity of a student’s certificate issued by various universities in the state. This service will act as a deterrent for fake certificate racketeers because anybody anywhere, and any time can verify the authenticity of certificates online.
