Credential Verification
A credential verification validates a candidate's professional credential/license as entered by the candidate.
Certn makes 3-5 sufficient attempts to obtain source data for verification and reports back accordingly. A sufficient attempt can be defined as an attempt which could reasonably lead to a result.
