Professional license verification
A professional license background check confirms your candidate holds the professional license necessary to be eligible for the role. Checkr helps you hire faster by automating this important step in your screening process.
Top reasons employers conduct professional license checks
Organizations use professional license verifications (PLV) to:
Confirm candidate eligibility
Professional license verification may be required to determine eligibility for highly specialized or regulated roles.
Make informed hiring decisions
Confirm your candidate’s professional credential or license is active and in good standing.
