You may need this certificate as part of the employment or screening process for employers or licensing bodies.
A National Police Certificate is a full record of your criminal history. It displays all releasable court outcomes (sentences, convictions and findings of guilt) from all Australian States and Territories.
You should check with your employer or licensing body to confirm that a NPC is appropriate as some employers and licensing bodies use alternative screening processes. If you are applying for child-related employment, or volunteering you may need to apply for a Working with Children Check.
