Other Agency Clearance
What if I am already clear through DHS or Consumer Affairs?
Clearance from any another agency e.g. Board of Psychology or a law enforcement agency is not transferable. Agencies that are transferable are under the regulation of Community Care Licensing e.g. Foster Care or Residential Care for the Elderly.
Even if you have a current Community Care Licensing clearance you still need to obtain fingerprint clearance in order to be associated with Life Skills.  The transfer process is not feasible since DPSS does not provide a record of the transfer.
