How to defend yourself from forgery?

Intelligence is not in diplomas and certificates,but in correctly made decisions

«Intelligence is not in diplomas and certificates,but in correctly made decisions»

Specialists and employers are interested in validity of professional education certificates. Today when there are a number of educational organizations of various types and forms of ownership on the market, we should be careful in making chose and check not only license.

According to law educational institutions have to upload information on all issued diplomas and certificates to Federal Education Certificates Register (FECR) since 2013.

The main idea of FECR is elimination of corruption and circulation of forged documents in education sphere. FECR gives employers the opportunity to check the validity of employee or candidate diplomas.

Confidentiality is insured by multilevel encryption during data acquisition and impossibility to get information without accurate educational certificate details.

Firstly registration was mandatory only for higher and secondary professional education certificates. But since 2019 all additional professional education organizations have to register issued certificates and diplomas.

OGE Academy registers all educational documents in database on a regular basis providing public with verifiable information on its activity. This way we provide additional protection of education quality.

Training No. 1. Team building and development: effective management of group processes

Every manager faces undisguised or concealed struggle within team. “Finger pointing”, conflicts, competition, opposition as a matter of principle – processes that can lead to full disorder. Destructive working atmosphere results in production decrease, disorganization and qualified personnel losses. Thinking that problems would settle by themselves means being under the illusion. The better Leader is ready for inevitable dynamic of group processes the more likely he will achieve good results considering abilities of all team members.

Training No. 2. Successful international cooperation: features of business communication with foreign partners

What does the famous Chinese smile mean? What can facilitate communication with Arab partner? How start acquaintance with German colleges? What contract execution process in different countries? The training will answer all these and other questions in sphere of intercultural business communication. Course participants will get the opportunity to study features of different business cultures and look at themselves through German, Chinese or Arabic “cultural glasses”.

 Training No. 3. Effective communication and personal growth (based on Schultz von Thun and Riemann-Tomanna models)

When a person comes in contact with other people, he has great opportunities to build successful and mutually satisfying relationships. But at the same time he faces a lot of dangers to ruin these relations. Shades in interpersonal communication are complex and not always distinguishable. Different levels of what is said and heard leads to chronic misunderstanding, which is a potential source of conflict. Training gives ones the opportunity to study modern achievements of European communication phycology, analyze own communicative habits and get practical skills of effective and authentic communication building.
