1. The LEAD Certificate Program is a self-paced program, which means OPM is not formally involved until you complete the 5 required seminars for a given level of leadership. This also means you register for each course individually as you progress through the seminars.
2. Within 90 days of completing the last of the five seminars at a given level, you must email a list of your 5 completed courses with the start dates to validate completion within the three year period to the OPM LEAD Certificate Program Manager. The contact information is LEAD@opm.gov and 304-870-8014.
3. Once validated, you will have 90 days to submit a 4-6 page capstone paper, detailing lessons learned and describing at least one application example at your job. The paper will be reviewed for Pass/Fail by an OPM Program Director/Faculty Member.
4. Once a "Pass" rating on the capstone paper is attained, you will received a LEAD Certificate.
