The application process says I need to have a fingerprint background check, if I’ve had one done do I need to repeat the process?

Not all fingerprint background checks are the same. We require a valid Arizona Department of Public Safety issued Level One Fingerprint Clearance Card. If you have this type of card and it is current, we can accept it.
