Just because a person claims to have a professional license on a resume does not mean they’re telling the truth about it. Many jobs require professional licenses as a prerequisite for hiring, so it’s important to verify that a person who claims to have a professional license actually does.
The results of a license verification include confirmation of the type of license, the license’s status, a certificate or designation number associated with the license, information about when the license expires (and its date of issuance) and whether there have been any disciplinary actions taken against the license holder, including suspensions or revocations.
