In our life, we often hear that some people spend a lot of money in participating in training and examinations, but the "International Vocational Certificate" obtained in the end is not recognized. Now we will talk about the topic of how to identify the authenticity of "international qualification certificate".
First, look at the organization name and registration certificate to identify whether it is a formal international organization.
International formal certificate authorities, no matter of which country, will generally add the name of the country before the name of the organization. And for those directly called “International xxxx Association” or "World xx Association" or "Asia xx Association", don't think that they are all approved by the United Nations. The United Nations manages all major international affairs, and does not care about the trivial matters of vocational certification. The "international certificate" issued by such organization is a scrap of paper. If you study their registration certificates (equivalent to the business license in mainland China) or seal, you will find that these "associations" usually have the "limited company" after their names, but these agencies omit "limited company" from their documents and websites, because they have a guilty conscience. If a private company can issue a certificate, you can just issue one from your own company. Why bother to buy from someone else?
Second, look at the letter, cover and seal sample.
Since the international certificate is issued by foreign certification agencies, the language of the certificate must be in English. Formal international certificate cover color generally uses red wine or blue. Red wine is a gentleman color, also known as professional color, which is mainly used in the design of high-end products in the world. And blue is the internationally recognized color, also known as international blue.
Another is to pay attention to whether the seal on the certificate is consistent with the English name on its certification document (license). If not, there's definitely a problem. Some countries have official seals with the name of the location. In some countries, the official seal has its place name. For example, the official seal of the United States has the name of the state, otherwise it is not the official seal. To make it clear, it is not a seal, and it can only be regarded as a LOGO. Only certificates with official seals have legal effect.
Third, look at the official website and query page.
A formal international organization must have formal official website, and will publish its legal documents on the Chinese official website, including the certification documents issued by the host country's government, the certification documents of Chinese consulates abroad, the authorization letter of foreign headquarters for Chinese agents and other qualification documents. If you understand English, you can also check if there are any instructions such as "training, certification" on these documents. International certificates generally provide online query.
Fourth, look at the professionalism of the organization.
Generally, formal international certification agencies have their specialties. Because of the structure of the rear expert team, they can only be good at providing certification services for a certain industry or field, or economic, or fashion, or art, or education. There is no certification agency in the world that can certify any industry or vocation, which can be easily seen from its website or promotional materials.
Basically, if you master the above items, you can identify the authenticity of an "international organization" or "international certificate". There are also some small experience to learn from, such as searching the work of the head of this organization, what social activities the organization has involved in, especially those of government departments, or take a look at who the organization has been working with and how long it's been working with, etc. All these will help us to judge the authenticity and authority of this international certification agency.
