(A)   Before an individual may commence regular fulltime employment as a firefighter, he or she must have been certified by the Illinois State Fire Marshal as a Firefighter II, as having successfully completed an approved training course as provided in ILCS Ch. 50, Act 740, §§ 1 et seq.
   (B)   The Firefighter II certification must be completed by the trainee within his or her probationary period of 12 months. Failure of any trainee to complete such basic training and certification within the required period will render that individual and local governmental agency ineligible for reimbursement funding for basic training for that individual in the fiscal year in which his or her probationary period ends. The individual may later become certified without reimbursement.
