WHAT IS A QUALIFIED SERVICE PROVIDER?

HOW DOES ONE BECOME A DSB QUALIFIED SERVICE PROVIDER?
DSB established a qualification process for service providers based on standards established by the Washington State Human Resources job classification specifications, national certification boards and industries that are applicable. When a service provider is employed in an occupation for which national, state or industry standards have not been established, DSB may adopt standards as appropriate to ensure quality services. In addition, all providers who have unsupervised access to DSB customers must go through a national, fingerprint-based background check and receive clearance to become qualified.
