Certification

iLead Leadership Certificate

To complete the iLead Leadership Certificate, you will be required to complete all of the tasks in each of the following leadership levels: Foundation for Personal Leadership – Level 1; Leadership through Teamwork – Level 2; and iLead Capstone Experience – Level 3. Each of these levels consists of learning modules, a service experience, and a report.

  • iLead Learning Modules - In this section, learning modules have been created to help those participating in the program understand certain leadership concepts. Each leadership development level has specific learning modules assigned to teach the overall objective of that level. These modules are all online and can be found by clicking on the appropriate links titled iLead Learning Modules.
  • Service Experience - A key element in learning the skills and attributes of a good leader is that of learning from experience, doing something. In this section you are asked to plan and carry out a specific type of project through application of the leadership concepts gained from the learning modules in each level of leadership development. Each service experience has specified criteria to meet. Concurrent with the service or projects you will be involved with, there will be specific questions about your experiences and participation.
  • Level Report - Record keeping is an important component of the learning process. When you are held responsible for what you are learning, the learning improves. In this section each participant will upload a document (either PowerPoint presentation or essay) to report on specific questions.

  • After meeting the requirements of each level, you will receive a certificate of completion. When all three levels have been certified, the BYU - Hawaii iLead Leadership Certificate will be awarded. Requirements are listed below.
