5 years ago (barely 18) I was arrested for petty theft. I stole a pack of Nike socks. I had a good plea agreement in my favor due to the low severity of my "criminal act" and my case was dismissed along with my guilty plea being removed after completing community service and a shoplifters course. There was never a conviction but the arrest still shows up on my background check. Will this keep me from obtaining an EMT license in California and an ambulance drivers certificate? I finished #1 in my emt class and passed national registry on my first try. Very worried that both license and ambulance driver cert will get denied. Also should I even disclose this on both applications? I was thinking I should disclose them but I also don't want to raise flags for no reason if that's not what they are looking for ....Please help!
