When applying for recertification, please use the Illinois Training and Standards Board Lead Homicide Recertification form.  Please include conference title, topic and hours of attendance.

Link to ILETSB Recertification Form:

Note * We have received a few calls from members concerned that the ILHIA Conference does not appear as certified training on the ILETSB website.  To clarify, there is a distinction between ILETSB “certified” courses and ILETSB “approved” courses that can be counted toward the 32 hours of in-service training required every 4 years for Lead Homicide Investigator recertification.  The ILHIA Conference annually receives confirmation from ILETSB of the number of hours that are “approved” towards the Lead Homicide recertification. Approved hours must be tracked individually and reported at the time of re-certification on the approved form.
