  • 1. LEAD Certificates are issued for a specific level of leadership. 2. For a given level, you must complete the required number of seminars.  3. The last of the 5 seminars must be completed within 3 years of the start date of the first seminar taken. 4. It is recommended, but not required, to complete the Assessment and Core seminars first, before taking the Policy and Skill categories. 5. You may earn a LEAD Certificate for a level of leadership, even if you are not at that level, but we strongly recommend checking with your training manager to check whether your agency has any specific rules regarding taking seminars for a higher level than your current position.
