Certificate Validation

Certificate Validation Document
(For Institutes, Corporations, Courses and Individuals)

Graduates from the EAAHE accredited institutions or from institutions of education holding an equivalent accreditation (approved by the EAAHE) may ensure and demonstrate that their education certificate and earned credits are considered to be bona fide and accredited according to the EAAHE standards by requesting an EAAHE Certificate Validation Document. The EAAHE Certificate Validation Document also specifies the total credits earned and their equivalency.

What Is The Certificate Validation Document From EAAHE?

The EAAHE is interested in assisting individuals to validate their specializations, validate their certificates and recognize earned credits on an international scale. To this end we have prepared a certificate validation procedure that will certify the credit and specialization equivalency of any certification earned at any of the EAAHE accredited institutions. This certificate validation document will also endorse the external quality review of the specialization, institution and program of study.

The EAAHE considers this certificate validation document service to be an important and constructive process to facilitate the acceptance of the specializations and credits earned from our accredited institutions.

Note that accreditation is a voluntary and nongovernmental process. No accreditation in the world can provide automatic acceptance and degree validation of the credits earned at other institutions, nor does it guarantee the acceptance of graduates by employers. Acceptance of students or graduates is always the prerogative of the receiving institution or employer.

What Are The Benefits Of
The Certificate Validation Document?

You will receive an international certificate validation document issued by EAAHE that will state the following information:

  •  Your full name
  •  Verification of the certificate and specialization earned
  •  Verification of the total credits corresponding to this certificate and specialization
  •  Verification of the credit’s composition in hours of study
  •  Certification of the credit’s equivalency
  •  Assurance that the educational institution is meeting the EAAHE education quality standards

The EAAHE certificate validation may be useful for the global acceptance of the specializations and credits by employers, professional associations, other institutions, distance learning centers, colleges or universities.

Who May Obtain A Certificate Validation Document From EAAHE?

The EAAHE may validate specializations and certificates from the following educational providers:

1. ECHEIA Accredited Institutions:

If your institute is not included in the list, you may recommend them to consider getting the EAAHE accreditation.

2. Institutions Holding an EAAHE Equivalent Accreditation:

This accreditation equivalency will be determined by the EAAHE after the application for a certificate validation is submitted by a graduate of such institution of education.
