Fingerprints & Background Check
It’s important to try and schedule this as early as you can because sometimes it can take up to 4 weeks.
You’ll get your fingerprints done and they’ll run an FBI check as well. You’ll have to wait a few more weeks before getting results back.
It’s important to note that a license will not be issued if the background check hasn’t passed.
Expect a delay if you are notified of an investigation into your background history. Unfortunately, there aren’t any exact guidelines of what will be accepted.
Have something in your background that you’re concerned about?
One thing to focus on when you’re going through the background portion, if you do have something on your criminal history is just to tell the truth. Full disclosure. Tell the truth. TREC is looking for full disclosure, honesty trustworthiness, and integrity.
