Certified Assessor Information

As part of the Illinois firefighter promotion process, a candidate's qualifications are evaluated by an Assessor which must be certified by the Joint Labor and Management Committee (JLMC).  The JLMC assessors must meet  requirements of their own which are also established by the JLMC.  Once certified by the JLMC, an assessor will remain certified for a 2 year period and be listed on a Roster of Certified Assessors maintained here.

Roster of Certified Assessors

This roster of assessors is certified by the Joint Labor and Management Committee (JLMC) pursuant to Section 50 of the Fire Department Promotion Act (50 ILCS 742/50), including a 3 page resume for each. Parties to the promotional process may,

  • review the roster and select your own assessors, or
  • ask the Office to provide a random list of assessors, or
  • submit a special request to the Office to provide you a list of assessors.
