MTCK (UK) Ltd are often asked by clients if there is a method by which they can check the authenticity of the Certificates of Competence for individuals who they intend to employ or, in the case of agencies, personnel they are considering supplying 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:
It was developed in response to a number of instances where individuals had fraudulently (and, potentially dangerously) attempted to gain employment, and it has accurately identified a number of 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:
The tool can be accessed through our website at www.mtcsuk.com
