Administrator Certification Section Forms

Forms are listed first by those used for administrator certification and then by those used by vendors.

Administrator Forms:

LIC 9214Application for Administrator Certification - Both initial and renewal applicants submit this form. In addition, this form is submitted by a previously certified administrator who did not renew their certificate within four (4) years from the date of expiration and so must reapply. NOTE: ACS is not responsible for reviewing the “high school diploma or equivalent …” so initial applicants DO NOT need to submit it with their LIC 9214.

LIC 508 - Criminal Record Statement - The applicant submits this as part of the initial administrator application process.

LIC 9163 - Request for Live Scan Service -This form is used by the applicant to submit their fingerprints to the Department of Justice for processing. The applicant submits a copy to ACS with the initial administrator application.

Vendor Forms:


The Administrator Certification Section (ACS) now offers a quick and convenient way to submit Vendor Applications and related forms electronically! In using this service, Vendors will be able to submit and track documents and receive ACS notices confirming receipt of Vendor documents.

Registering to access the system is free and easy. A one-time registration for your vendorship will be required upon your first use of service. Registering for an account does not mean you are an approved vendor.

Register and sign in to the Vendor Automation Platform 

For step by step instructions in using the service, see the Vendor Automation Manual.
