(225 ILCS 447/15-25)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2024)
Training; private detective and employees.
(a) Registered employees of a private detective agency
shall complete, within 30 days of their employment, a minimum
of 20 hours of training provided by a qualified instructor.
The substance of the training shall be related to the work
performed by the registered employee and shall include relevant information as to the identification of terrorists, acts of terrorism, and terrorist organizations, as defined by federal and State statutes.
(b) It is the responsibility of the employer to certify,
on a form provided by the Department, that the employee has
successfully completed the training. The form shall be a
permanent record of training completed by the employee and
shall be placed in the employee's file with the employer for
the period the employee remains with the employer. An agency
may place a notarized copy of the Department form in lieu of
the original into the permanent employee registration card
file. The original form shall be given to the employee when
his or her employment is terminated. Failure to return the
original form to the employee is grounds for disciplinary
action. The employee shall not be required to repeat the
required training once the employee has been issued the form.
An employer may provide or require additional training.
(c) Any certification of completion of the 20-hour basic
training issued under the Private Detective, Private Alarm,
Private Security, and Locksmith Act of 1993 or any prior Act
shall be accepted as proof of training under this Act.
