Will I be required to do a background check?

Dependent on the program setting, Companions may be required to submit to a Federal and State criminal background check. Background checks may also be dependent upon the length and/or duration of the program(s). Approval as a Companion is contingent upon favorable results. Background clearances from other agencies are non-transferable.
