Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (225 ILCS 420/5) (from Ch. 111, par. 7655)
    Sec. 5. In addition to the requirements of Section 4, a person shall be qualified to be certified if he or she:
    (a) has passed an examination approved by the Department to determine his fitness to perform the duties of or otherwise function as a child protective investigator or child welfare specialist;
    (b) is at least 18 years of age;
    (c) has completed the curriculum of study or training, developed pursuant to Section 4, at the Department, college or other institution that is approved to do business in this State; and
