Verified Tertiary Academic Qualification (VERITAQ)


VERITAQ helps employers validate job applicants’ academic qualifications better and faster than other services. In Nigeria, academic qualifications are heavily emphasized when it comes to hiring. However, an unfortunate consequence has been a rise in the forgery of tertiary academic certificates. This has resulted in economic and social costs to those possessing authentic certificates, as well as costs to employers, academic institutions, government agencies, and society at large. The Verified Tertiary Academic Qualification (VERITAQ) platform will provide the definitive e-verification solution for registered academic certificates such as NCE, Diploma, OND, HND, and others. By enabling HR managers to validate graduation certificates in real time, VERITAQ gives employers confident access to qualified candidates and ensures that job seekers are treated fairly according to their true academic merits.
