Background Check Requirement or Letter of Recommendation:
If you are not currently working within a organization that serves the youth then you must submit a background check prior to training (due to the nature of working with children). The participant is responsible for obtaining and submitting the background check. We also have a reputable third party service that we use. This provides you with a way to request your background check online, and it is sent directly to us (a small fee is involved).
If you are currently working with the youth then we will need a letter of recommendation from the agency that you currently work for. This is required before you receive your certification. You may still register and begin classes, but the requested information must be provided before we will provide you with your certification.
