Such training may include all or any part of the subjects enumerated in Section 7 of this Act.
    The corporate authorities of all participating local governmental agencies may elect to participate in the advanced training for permanent and part-time police officers and permanent county corrections officers but nonparticipation in this program shall not in any way affect the mandatory responsibility of governmental units to participate in the basic recruit training programs for probationary full-time and part-time police and permanent county corrections officers. The failure of any permanent or part-time police officer or permanent county corrections officer to successfully complete any course authorized under this Section shall not affect the officer's status as a member of the police department or county sheriff's office of any local governmental agency.
    The Board may initiate, administer, and conduct training programs for clerks of circuit courts. Those training programs, at the Board's discretion, may be the same or variations of training programs for law enforcement officers.
