Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check
Department of Health
WA Health requires a Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check before attending fieldwork at any of their sites. The Criminal Record Screening (CRS) Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) document provides further information on applying for and obtaining a WA Health criminal record screening. Curtin has been advised by WA Health that when applying for a Nationally Coordinated Criminal Record Check they will accept a valid National Police Clearance provided it has been issued within the past 12 months.
Department of Education
The Department of Education requires a Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check for students undertaking fieldwork in an educational facility in Western Australia. To ensure compliance with the Department’s strict criminal screening criteria, police clearances or criminal record checks obtained through any other agency or organisation will not be accepted by the Department of Education. Curtin has been advised that student applications will be processed at the same cost as volunteer applications.
