Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Guardianship and Advocacy Act. Provides that the State Guardian shall provide a training program that outlines the duties and responsibilities of guardians appointed for adults with disabilities under the Probate Act of 1975. Provides that the training program shall be offered to courts at no cost, and shall outline the responsibilities of guardians and the rights of persons with disabilities in adult guardianships. Provides that in developing the training program content, the State Guardian may consult with various entities. Amends the Probate Act of 1975. Provides that a person may not act as the guardian of an adult with a disability until he or she has completed a training program developed by the State Guardian or by another suitable provider approved by the court. Exempts from the training requirements public guardians, state guardians, attorneys currently authorized to practice law, and persons who are certified as National Certified Guardians by the Center for Guardianship Certification. Provides that at the conclusion of a hearing on a petition to terminate the adjudication of disability or revoke or modify letters of appointment, the court may require the guardian to complete the training program. Provides that the Governor may designate, without the advice and consent of the Senate, the Office of State Guardian as an interim public guardian to fill a vacancy in one or more counties. Provides that the Guardianship and Advocacy Commission shall provide public guardians with information about certification requirements and procedures for testing and certification offered by (instead of "professional training opportunities and facilitate testing and certification opportunities at locations in Springfield and Chicago with") the Center for Guardianship Certification. Effective one year after becoming law.
