How do I get the Background Checked badge on my profile?

Request a background check through your account

If you skipped the background check step while building your profile, you can always request a new background check through the Profile page in your TakeLessons account online (see below).

Note: Starting January 1st, 2022 all new and existing contractors will be required to have a background check in order to provide services through the TakeLessons platform

If you've never had a background check run through TakeLessons:

STEP 1 Log in to your TakeLessons account and navigate to the Profile page. Click Get a Background Check to get started.



STEP 2 After you have purchased your background check, you will need to complete the background check authorization form from your TakeLessons Account using a computer. Then select Submit.


Once you've passed your background check, your new badge will appear:

  • On your profile
