National Police Check

A National Police Check (also known as a Police Check, Police Clearance, Criminal History Check, National Police History Check) lists your disclosable court outcomes and pending charges (subject to relevant spent convictions/non-disclosure legislation and/or information release policies). This is a process that involves all Australian police services. A police check is required before some workplace training and placements.


How to request a national police check


If you require a police check, the most convenient option is to do it online – this also allows students to get it sent directly to Australian Professional Skills Institute, as well as the applicant. Applicants are required to submit 100 points of ID verification. Please allow 3 weeks for delivery.  Students cannot attend work experience without this.

In Person

Alternatively, in person applications for a National Police Check can be made at a participating Australia Post outlet and require a 100 point ID verification.
