Your next steps at this point are to:
- Schedule and attend your fingerprinting appointment.
- Schedule your licensing exam.
You do need to complete the above steps in that exact order. You do not have to wait for your fingerprints to be processed in order to schedule and take your licensing exam. All you have to do is schedule and attend your fingerprinting appointment beforehand.
