Safe, certified and genuine with the ÖSD Cert Checker App

15. May 2024
The ÖSD Cert Checker App is now in the apple App Store and in Google Play Store.

Secure, certified, genuine – the ÖSD language certificate with a new security feature

Wondering why? It is becoming increasingly common for forged or purchased certificates to be presented as proof. We want to counteract, so we added an additional security feature to our certificates. This ensures both the authenticity and integrity of our ÖSD German certificates, and additional information can be accessed.

Scanned, confirmed, informed – this is how the app works.

Not sure if the ÖSD certificate presented is genuine? Use Cert Checker! This app offers an efficient and reliable way to verify the authenticity of certificates. All you need to do is scan the QR code integrated into ÖSD certificates since January 1, 2024.

Here are some important features of Cert Checker:

  • Fast and precise verification
  • User-friendly
  • Initial verification possible offline
  • Detailed information at a glance

Important: This Cert Checker application works for all ÖSD certificates issued after 1 January 2024.

Advantages for educational institutions and employers

The Cert Checker app is proving to be a valuable resource for various target groups. For example, authorities, institutions such as universities and language schools, as well as employers, now have the opportunity to quickly and easily check the authenticity of ÖSD language certificates.

The necessity and verifiability of genuine language certificates also forms the basis for an increased demand for examination dates, which in turn can have a positive effect on examination centres.

Transparency and security – added value for everyone

In the educational sector, transparency and objectivity are highly valued. The Cert Checker app thus bridges the gap between education and everyday life, setting new standards in the verification of academic and professional qualifications.

However, the ÖSD’s efforts to highlight counterfeits and prevent fraud are not limited to the Cert Checker app. Under the section “Protection Against Fraud,” you can find more information on this topic.
