How does one get an apostille for a background check?

A friend asked me for help getting an apostille of her daughter's background check for a job in Korea- I haven't a clue where to start, but I've included her question inside.

My question has to do with the process of getting authentication (apostille) for FBI background check for employment in Korea. Their site has a list of Channelers (agencies that do the background check), but it also has the following:
"An FBI-approved Channeler cannot authenticate (apostille) fingerprint search results. A request for your FBI Identification Record or proof that a record does not exist must be submitted directly to the FBI if an apostille is needed."
So, how does one go about getting the authentication? The FBI office in San Jose gave me an address in West Virginia. I called their number and they have a recording that walks you through the process, but I didn't hear a timeline. I am concerned about the timing since I've read it takes 12 weeks. My daughter is to be in Korea in October.
What are some reliable agencies that would do this process for you? You'll find a whole bunch of them when you do a search, but which one is reliable?
