Who can check credit for rental applications

Is there a way to get licensed to be an authorized "Credit check" agent, which can check the credit and do a background check on rental application?
Thank you.

Before you could check your applicants, you would need an onsite inspection of your business or home. You must have a shreeder, fax, computer, and a locked filing cabinet. And once you have the inspection, (a $40.00-$70.00 fee), you MUST have your applicants consent to a credit check

Yes, but as Keli mentioned you will probably have to have a site inspection.
