(55 ILCS 135/30)
Death investigation training; waiver for experience.
(a) The Board shall conduct or approve a training program in death investigation for the training of coroners. Only coroners who successfully complete the training program may be assigned as lead investigators in a coroner's investigations. Satisfactory completion of the training program shall be evidenced by a certificate issued to the coroner by the Board.
(b) The Board shall develop a process for waiver applications sent from a coroner's office for those coroners whose prior training and experience as a death or homicide investigator may qualify them for a waiver. The Board may issue a waiver at its discretion, based solely on the prior training and experience of a coroner as a death or homicide investigator.
