How long does it take to get cleared as a volunteer?

Posted by:

The entire process can take between 2 - 3 weeks, and in some cases a little more.

This depends on whether your medical provider will refer you for a TB skin test/Chest X-ray or if your assignment will require fingerprint clearance.  Getting results back from the Department of Justice/FBI varies per person.  The average turnaround time is a few days, but there is no way for our office to know for sure how long it will take for results to come back once we submit prints.
