Our Start

When biometrics professionals met in early 2000, they were essential in establishing the National Live Scan Fingerprinting Association, the National Fingerprinting Association, and the Biometrics Association. They were made aware that many persons interested in opening a live scan fingerprinting business were often discouraged by outdated and erroneous information and were frequently duped by equipment providers into purchasing equipment they did not require and in some cases could not use in their state.


They recognized a need for individuals interested in starting their own live scan business to obtain training and knowledge. They collaborated effectively to create, deploy, and administer the world's first comprehensive live scan fingerprint training system, as well as the development and management of readily available and much-needed live scan fingerprint training.

Our goal is to ensure that anyone interested in starting a live scan business has access to all of the tools and information they require for their state-specific regulations, guidelines, and protocols, as well as a clear grasp of the different equipment and software options that are available to them. By providing not only instruction but also dependable solutions that are presented in an easy to grasp format. NFA's division works together with other organizations to ensure that its students have everything they need to be successful in their tasks in all 50 states. 

Training Options Have Been Made Simple
