The best people to ask is the county you're dealing with. I would e-mail them or give them a call. Each county and state is different. Honestly, I don't usually see any timeline and I think it depends on how many applicants they get, any hold ups like doing background checks, a box not checked on the form, etc.Hello all, hope all is well. I turned in all my paper work to get certified in the county I want to work in. Turned it in about 3 weeks ago and still haven't received anything in the mail. If possible, any input on how long it took you guys to receive yours?
