One of Karate BC’s policies on membership require all club instructors 16 years and older, including assistant instructors, to undergo a Criminal Records Check – including a vulnerable sector check – every three years. The original results are to be submitted to Karate BC’s office, along with the receipt if there was a fee.
The following is a summary of the steps you can take to obtain your Criminal Records Check. If you have any further questions, please contact the Karate BC office.
- Instructors should contact their local RCMP/police station for an application form.
- If required, submit letter of request to Karate BC for signing (click HERE for letter), and take with you to the police station.
- Submit original results to Karate BC once received. Please ensure receipts are attached.
- Expenses incurred for this application will be reimbursed by Karate BC.
- Chief Instructors who have not completed a Criminal Records Check and submitted the original document to Karate BC will be fined $100; and
- The club and all its members will have all Karate BC privileges suspended immediately, including removal from Karate BC’s club listing page on the website.
- New Clubs: The Chief Instructor must complete a Criminal Records Check prior to membership registration.
