The temptation to fake qualification papers is real

When having a certificate means a higher chance of employment for someone who’s desperate, it’s hard to resist a fake as a quick fix.

When a worker feels they have enough experience to perform a higher paying job, but doesn’t have the required certification, the allure of fudging their qualification can be strong.

Degrees and diplomas are expensive. Not everyone can afford study time or student debt. Shortcuts are enticing.

Despite overhauls of Australian employment screening standards, fraud cases still pop up, even in high-level corporate and government positions.

Your business needs assurance that a prospective worker is properly trained to do what you employ them to do.

Frauds deceive employers in these ways:

Fake certificates: A simple online search will reveal the lucrative market for fake qualification papers.

Fake institutions: Bogus online colleges organise degree milling, and some institutions award degrees and diplomas they’re not authorised to issue.

Inflated qualifications: Inflated qualifications: Candidates list qualifications they didn’t finish, or embellish their existing certificate, for example, they list a Cert II instead of their Cert I.

Certificated Verification process

The repercussions of being discovered with an underqualified employee are the stuff nightmares are made of. 

  • Loss of revenue through faulty work or delayed projects
  • Legal proceedings
  • Unwanted media attention
  • Wasted recruitment and training costs
  • Loss of public trust
  • Harm to innocent people

The good news is that verification of education doesn’t have to be hard.

The hassle-free way to do certificate verifications

We’ve taken on the hard work of checking credentials. Whether you’re managing an internal job transfer or recruiting externally, our automated solution sniffs out suspicious activity within minutes.

Our system is easy and accurate.

Because it’s fully digital, your onboarding process is simple and fast. What sometimes takes days when relying on people, our system takes seconds to complete. Automated verification lightens your load by taking away:
  • the time and cost spent waiting for an authorised person to verify documents

Our technology combs through the fine details of an applicant’s education certificate so that you don’t need to worry about missing hidden clues to fraud.

Certificate Validation

How it works

Diploma Example

We go to the source

When you only check the certificate, deception can go unnoticed. We go deeper. We verify details directly with the institution that awarded the certificate. Because we have access to global educational databases, we are able to accomplish that.

You get the detail

To authenticate an education certificate, Scantek confirms:

  • the institute is authorised to award the qualification
  • the course is valid
  • the date the candidate started
  • the date the candidate finished
  • the grade or achievement

That level of precision leaves no wiggle room for exaggerated or false qualification claims.
