Forged Certificates

We are often asked by clients if there is a method by which they can check the authenticity of the Certificates of Competence for individuals whom they intend to employ or, in the case of agencies, supply for a contract.

There is a Certificate Validation tool on our website, and on MTCS Online, that is free to use and instantly proves the authenticity of a certificate. 

Click on the following link to access the tool:

It has accurately identified several forged certificates in the past!

We therefore encourage everyone involved in HR and recruitment to make use of this tool.

We also strongly recommend that individuals check the validity of their own certificate if they have any doubt to its origin.

The following link takes you to a guidance video on the Certificate Validation tool:
