The NMAC requires that applicants for initial licensure or endorsement, at their cost, provide the board with fingerprints and other information necessary for a state and national criminal background check. Your fingerprints will be submitted to Idemia for a criminal history search on their IdentoGo platform resulting in the generation of a nationwide criminal history record for you.


The nationwide criminal history record includes information concerning a person’s arrests, indictments or other formal criminal charges and any dispositions arising there from, including convictions, dismissals, acquittals, sentencing and correctional supervision, collected by criminal justice agencies and stored in the computerized data bases of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the national law enforcement telecommunications systems, the Department of Public Safety or the repositories of criminal history information of other states.
