How to:

Start by clicking on the Educator Licensing Online link and start the background check process. Wait for the approval (you should get an email from the State asking you to go and have your fingerprints taken (there was talk that they might have figured out how to save your fingerprints, but I am not holding my breath that this has happened yet, the State moves very slowly). Once you get the approval, you can go to the Provo District office and have your fingerprinting done.
