Did you know

People are getting ever craftier when it comes to trying to fake their way into a position they have no business holding.

Verifying licenses is a crucial step in your screening and risk mitigation program.

Turnaround Time

6 – 72 hours

Information Required

  • Applicant Information – Name and Date of Birth
  • License number, license type and issuing agency information

Results Guidelines

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.

FAQ

Q: What is verified through a professional license verification?

A: In a Professional license verification, Info Cubic verify an applicant’s professional license or professional certificate. This does not include things such as a driver’s license, course completion certificates or organizational memberships.

 

Q: What is the difference between a professional license and a professional certificate?

A: A professional license is generally issued by a government agency for a regulated industry (such as healthcare, lawyers, teachers, etc.), and is either issued at the state or national level. Professional certificates are earned from a professional society, university, certification bodies or private certifiers. While generally not issued by the government, some governmental agencies can require that certain certificates be held in order to perform a task or a job.

 

Q: What type of information do you verify in a professional license search?

A: Info Cubic will attempt to verify the license type, the issuing organization, the issue date, expiration date, and whether there were any disciplinary actions attached to the license/certificate. Some licenses are lifetime and have no expiration date.
