People are getting ever craftier when it comes to trying to fake their way into a position they have no business holding. Today you can simply search “fake license certificate” and be presented with dozens of websites ready to print up a diploma and accompanying license for whatever field you want to try out, for anything from CPA to medical professionals. Verifying licenses is a crucial step in your screening and risk mitigation program.
Any position where it is important to verify your applicant’s qualifications based on provided information related to their professional license (i.e., attorneys, medical practitioners, real estate agents, accountants, etc.)
A Professional License is verified with the state or federal agency that issued the license. While some agency records are available online, many others are only available through telephone, fax, email or mailed requests.

When available, license number, date of issuance and expiration are provided along with any disciplinary action on file. Agencies that issue professional licenses do not always have access to a complete history of restrictions or violations. Most often, the Professional License Verification simply provides the current status of the license claimed. If the applicant does not provide complete name, license number, license type and issuing agency information, it is often difficult or impossible to verify the license. Consultation with qualified legal counsel is recommended for all employment law matters.
