The cost of the screening + APS training is $38. Payment is made online within NCSI upon completing the screening/APS application. All screens through NCSI will be good for two calendar years. All APS certificates will be good for two calendar years as well.
It is imperative that applicants use their full legal name (as stated on a valid driver’s license, passport or non-driver state ID) and correct date of birth.
Once an application is completed, in about ten days, the applicant is notified when a determination is made letting them know their background screen has been completed. Club directors will be able to see a status for both the background screen and APS training on their club page from application to completion.
Anyone that fails a background screen cannot re-apply for another screen until the following season.
*JVA does accept AAU background screens. AAU screened coaches do not need to complete a JVA screen.
