Academic Verification Services

Verify Your Candidate's Academic & Education Qualifications

Make Sure Your Candidate Has the Professional Education They Claim

Don’t fall victim to hiring unqualified and untruthful candidates. When your business is hiring for a position that requires a certain amount of training, certification, or education, make sure to verify that you’re receiving a candidate that has the necessary knowledge.

At Barada Associates, we ensure all academic verification background checks are 100% accurate.

Why Should Your Company Choose Education Verifications From Barada Associates?

Although some companies consider academic verification less important than criminal and credit history checks, the second most common misrepresentation on resumes and job applications (per the FBI) is education history.

Failing to uncover academic puffery (or outright falsehood) may not seem like risky behavior, especially when compared to the possibility of hiring a dangerous individual who later causes workplace violence. Nevertheless, performing full education verification is very important for several reasons.

Benefits of our education verification services include:

  • Increased confidence in hiring decisions
  • Ensures you hire a qualified candidate
  • Improves your company’s performance and integrity in your industry
  • Maintain your company’s compliance with industry rules and regulations

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) makes it clear that some positions classified as exempt require employees to have advanced, professional, or specialized education. Should the FLSA challenge the exemption, the employer must be able to prove the worker has appropriate credentials.

Choose Barada Associates for all of your academic verification needs.

Timely Turnaround Times

Typical employment and academic background checks verify all post-high school educational claims (sometimes certifications are also verified). The period of time covered in education verification results will differ with each individual that you’re performing the education or degree verification on. Ultimately, the length of education background checks depends on how long the applicant was a student at the educational institution and when the degrees or certificates were awarded.

When you work with our professionals at Barada Associates, we will return your results within 48 hours no matter the length of the background check. We’re able to offer highly accurate results in such a short time frame thanks to our sophisticated primary source checking procedure.

To complete our verifying process with speed and accuracy, we rely on the specialized knowledge of our employees. Each member of our team has years of experience confirming not only enrollment, attendance, and/or graduation dates, but also the degree and/or certification that an applicant has earned at a specified school.
