Fingerprinting for Teachers
Yes, we provide fingerprinting service for teachers who require Identity Verified Prints (IVP). Collecting IVP fingerprints requires the submission of the application packet directly from our office so as to not break the chain of custody. Therefore, please bring in with you the money order or business check made payable to DPS in the amount of $67.
A Fingerprint Clearance Card requiring Identity Verified Prints covers the following certifications: Department of Education Certification (ARS 15-534), Tutors & Teacher Preparation Programs (ARS 15-534) and Charter School Instructors (ARS 15-183).
Please note that livescan fingerprinting performed by Arizona Livescan is not only accepted by the Arizona Department of Public Safety for IVP Fingerprints, it is the preferred method for fingerprinting. With our service, IVP packets are always available in our office at no charge.
Obtaining your Arizona Fingerprint Clearance Card requires two steps:
First, obtain a money order or cashier’s check made payable to “DPS” in the amount of $67.
Next, visit Arizona Livescan at 2432 W. Peoria Ave, Ste. 1026 (Bldg. #2) in Phoenix, AZ to have your fingerprints digitally scanned using state-of-the-art fingerprint technology. We will print your fingerprints to an FBI FD-258 card using an FBI certified printer and assist you in completing your application. We will submit your fingerprints, money order, and completed Fingerprint Clearance Card application to the Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS). AZDPS will, after a successful criminal background check, issue you a Fingerprint Clearance Card.
