Here's what I've done so far...
- Signed my contract
- Scanned a color copy of my passport to email
- Had passport size photos taken and scanned them to email
- Filled out the information needed for my Visa
- Signed off for a CBC
Not too bad!
Here is what the next few steps look like...
- Obtain a Criminal Record Check from the FBI.
- Scan my education documents: diploma, transcript, and teaching license
Now the education documents are easy but the Criminal Record Check will be a more difficult process. If you ever need an FBI check, visit http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/background-checks to get the information right from the source. This will give you the information you need to obtain a background check. Since I need mine done directly through the FBI (not through a Channeler), I visited this link to get the detailed steps of the process: http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/background-checks/submitting-an-identification-record-request-to-the-fbi . An important thing to note when getting a record check like this done through the FBI is that it could take anywhere form 5-6 weeks to complete. Looks like I will be getting started right away!
I'm off to fill out my Applicant Information Form and find a time to get my fingerprints done!
More to come soon!
