TLDR at the bottom.
Does anyone here have experience gaining the DCJS License/certification in Virginia?
I’ve been looking into it recently and it from what I’ve seen it sounds like a certification that couldn’t hurt to have and going through the classes would benefit myself and in turn benefit my boss.
Now the tricky part is I know a fingerprint and background search are part of the program.
I have an underage possession of alcohol charge on my record from when I was 19, not concerned about that as I don’t see that causing me to be fired if my boss found out or barred from the license (please correct me if I am incorrect).
But at the time I was also arrested and charged with a DUI. You can now berate me for being such an irresponsible and selfish pile of shit, there no arguing that. I was, and have learned my lesson from the experience and have not gotten into a car the same day as I have even had a single drink since and never will.
I was lucky that I did not kill someone else or myself doing that and also very lucky that I was never convicted of the charge and it was dropped and expunged from my record. Would this still pop up on the background search and become known to my boss or bar me from the program?
TLDR: I was charged with a DUI, not convicted though and it has been expunged off my record. Will this pop up on the background search for the DCJS License/certification
