2.     PA Department of Human Services Certification - request completed online but the response can take up to a week; AND

3.     FBI Clearance (for those individuals who have not lived in Pennsylvania for 10 consecutive years) Register online but must go to a local approved vendor to be fingerprinted; OR

4.     Keep Kids Safe Certification (for those individuals who have lived in PA for the past 10 years) Certification that is signed, dated and witnessed and takes minutes to complete (Click here to download a copy of the KEEP KIDS SAFE CERTIFICATION FORM).
