How Do I Complete My California Background Check?

Live Scan Background Check

You can complete your Live Scan background check at any livescan location, including most UPS locations or a WellnessMart location. Click here for a comprehensive list of LiveScan locations, including our recommended UPS locations

  • UPS - Most UPS locations provide livescan fingerprinting. Call your local UPS store to check if they conduct livescans, or use the link above to find fingerprinting locations.
  • WellnessMart: To get started, download and fill out this form and bring it to your local Wellnessmart location. After you complete the scan, your results will automatically be sent to Swing.
  • Other Live Scan Location: If you can’t make it to a WellnessMart, you can go to any Live Scan location. Download and fill out this form and bring it to your appointment.



  • Please make sure to call in advance or check store hours to make sure the UPS/Livescan location is open and does not require an appointment
  • Applicants must have a current valid ID
    • Driver’s License or State issued ID card
  • Bring two copies of the Swing Live Scan form - a copy for you to keep, and a copy for the Live Scan operator to keep. If you do not have this form, you will be unable to get your LiveScan completed. 
  • Let the Live Scan operator know that you’re getting your Live Scan for Swing Education
  • Once your Livescan is complete, make sure to indicate that you completed it in your Swing Account. Please give Swing Education 5-7 business days to receive and process your background check. You will be notified via email when it is processed and reviewed. 


  • How can I check the status of my Live Scan background check?
    • Swing Education receives your Live Scan results within 5-7 business days. However, if you would like to check the status of your results, you can visit the CA DOJ's website to see if your Live Scan has been processed.
    • Once your Live Scan has finished processing, please allow up to 48 hours for your account to be updated
  • Can I request a copy of my background check from Swing Education?
    • Unfortunately, Swing Education is unable to provide you with a copy of your background check. However, you can request your own copy through the CA DOJ. If you would like to request a copy of your Live Scan background check, click here to be redirected to the CA DOJ's website.
  • What if I've already done a Live Scan background check for another organization?
    • Unfortunately, even if you’ve done this with other schools or districts, legally you’ll have to do one with us. Even if you’ve already done one to get your permit/credential, you will need to do one with us.
  • Can I do my TB test and Live Scan background check at the same time at Wellnessmart?
    • Yes! You can definitely do both at the same time.
