Education Background Checks


All-encompassing background screenings are the cornerstone of responsible hiring in the education world. Whether for teachers, drivers, maintenance personnel, or even volunteers, education background checks need to be comprehensive and fast.


Sterling Infosystems provides schools and training institutions with high-quality, thorough, and expeditious background screening services as part of your process for hiring decisions, employment continuance, and academic selection.


Ensure high integrity through criminal history checks, Sex Offender and MVR searches and similar background checks for employment. Sterling's expertise in DOT compliance enables thorough vetting of drivers. Your due diligence may also include other services from our extensive portfolio, such as employment history and education verification, and/or verification of professional licensing or certification. Whatever your organizational structure or program offerings, Sterling’s professionals will assist you in creating packages of background screenings that support best practices and match your specific needs.


Sterling knows that education background checks are no longer limited to employees. In addition to background checks for employment, more and more education and training institutions are electing to perform student background checks. Designed expressly to meet this need, our Sterling Student product is a self-initiating service targeted to programs for which pre-enrollment background checking is mandated. Direct contact means student background checks via Sterling Student reduce your administrative overhead and speed turnaround, saving money.


When you need education background checks, gain the confidence of having Sterling as your compliance partner.
