Background requirements

Postby Past Examiner » Mon Aug 01, 2011 5:29 pm

Hello:

I was an examiner who got out of the business about 8 years ago give or take. At that time, Examone was doing background checks up to 5 years back and I can't remember what the other companies were doing.

I'm thinking of getting back into the field. Does anyone know what the background requirements are now? I have something on my record from when I was 19 years old (I'm well into my 30's). Nothing violent, but I would rather avoid embarrassment if the check goes back that far. Info on all the big companies would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Does anyone know the answer to this? Specifically for APPS? Thanks.

I know when we have recently had examiners credentialed through Exam1, APPS, EMSI, and Portamedic, we have been told it is 7 years and looking only for felonies. I have not seen a denial come back for anything beyond 7 years, although I HAVE seen a denial come back for reasons other than a felony, such as more minor misdemeanors. I am not sure who really makes these decisions and no one seems to tell you that, but 7 years does seem to be the length of time.
