Summary: 

World Education Services (WES) is the largest non-profit credential evaluation service in North America. WES Global Talent Bridge works with individuals, community organizations, institutions and employers to help skilled immigrants overcome the barriers they face in becoming employed in their field. It provides credential evaluations for international students and immigrants planning to study or work in the U.S. and Canada.

As as example, World Education Services developed a pilot project to assess the education of migrants and refugees missing academic documents required in traditional assessments. WES provides a detailed assessment based on copies of transcripts, or if only partial documentary evidence is available, a re-construction of the program of studies based on knowledge of the curriculum;
