Are freelancers qualified?

If a customer has posted or requested a service where a qualification is required, it is important that the freelancer has the right qualification to complete that request.
The best way to know if a freelancer is qualified and the right person for your request is to view their profile and also view their certification, licenses or qualifications before starting the request. Most industries also have databases where you can check someone’s qualification.
If you are unsure if your request requires a qualification please check with the industry’s regulatory body in your State.
