Embassies will authenticate diplomas issued from universities, colleges, and institutions which are accredited by U.S Department of Education-recognized accrediting organizations. If it doesn't appear on the Department of Education database of accredited post-secondary institutions, a U.S. Embassy cannot stamp the diploma, as the stamp only attests to the accreditation of the institution in question.
OSHAcademy is a private training institution, not affiliated with the U.S. Department of Education, and does not offer a "degree-program" but rather a "certificate-program." Therefore, embassies are not generally going to attest to the authenticity of the training. Unfortunately, a great many worthwhile training courses and professional organizations do not have U.S. Department of Education accreditation, so the U.S. Embassy does not stamp or authenticate them.
The purpose of the authentication process is to help guard against false 'diploma mill' degrees, and we agree with the U.S. Embassy policy. Please be assured that OSHAcademy is NOT a diploma mill. There is no way a student will receive a course or program certificate without studying the material and passing the exams. If you have any questions on this topic please call or email OSHAcademy directly.
