  1. Application
  2. Skills Testing
  3. Background Check
  4. Reference Checks and Training

Step One – Application, Interview & Photograph

Once you have all the minimum requirements you will be asked to come in to the office for an orientation, to sign agreements, and to finalize documentation and finish the rest of the HR process. The application and intake takes about 30 minutes to complete on average and is entirely in English - you may NOT have outside help completing the application. All supporting documentation should be submitted with the application.

When you come in for orientation you should be dressed as if you are going to work. The orientation takes 2 hours. Also, if you have not given us a head-shot image we will take one at this time or take it from your driver license.

Step Two – Skills Testing

You will be tested in various areas based upon your skills, experience and training in alignment with the types of positions that you would like to be placed. Also, we encourage you to use the training videos and supportive training materials we provide. We provide these materials at our office at no cost to you (please call and make an appointment).  You are required to have an initial 5 hours of training before you can be placed and an additional 5 hours of training every year from the day your register with C.D.D.S. thereafter.

Step Three – Background Checks

Fill in the highlighted sections of the C.D.D.S. Background Check form we provide to you.  We will give you a list of some local Live Scan locations where you can get the background check done, and an Internet link to a much larger list if you need additional location options.

Choose the local location you prefer and take the form there. They will keep the original copy of the form and give you back the remaining two copies (one copy is for our agency personnel files records we have on you).

This informs us that you have completed the background check and we can go online a few days later to retrieve the results of the check. You can mail, fax or deliver our copy to us anytime after you complete the background check.

Step Four – Reference Checks and Training

We will verify the references you provided in your application. If we cannot reach one of your references, that means they are not verifiable we may ask you to submit an additional references.

We will then assign you to do online training, if you have not already done so, to meet all licensing requirements and training certifications.

If your background check is clear, we can verify your references and all minimum requirements check out as complete, you will then be eligible for assignments.
