This short video will provide step-by-step instructions to guide you through the online application process.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN
A valid email address is required to request a commercial background check. AACPS utilizes a third-party vendor, CARCO Group - Inquiries Screening, to perform commercial background checks. Shortly after Inquiries Screening receives the applicant's initial submission, the applicant will receive an email from CARCO Group with an acknowledgement of the request. This email will provide instructions for the applicant to continue the background check process by completing all required forms in their entirety. Inquiries Screening will then provide verification to the applicant upon receipt of the completed application. Typically, results of the background check take approximately 3 weeks to complete. Applications must be made in the Google Chrome platform utilizing a laptop, desk top computer, or tablet; applications submitted via cell phone may not process correctly.
