FAQ's


How do I begin the LMDC program?

You do not have to enroll in the LMDC program. Simply register for an eligible course and you are on your way!

We recommend downloading the LMDC Tracking Log to help guide your course choices and track your completion of certificate requirements.

When you have completed all requirements, use this form to contact the HR Training & Organization Development Team to request your certificate!

Do I have to register for LMDC courses?

It depends. You must register to participate in the Develop Your Dominion synchronous facilitator-led online courses. However, for your electives there are asynchronous course options on COVLC and LinkedIn Learning that are self-paced and do not require registration.

Do I have to provide proof of completed courses to receive my Certificate?

Yes, but only for asynchronous electives. In synchronous facilitator-led courses, your attendance is already recorded. If you didn't take any asynchronous elective courses on COVLC or LinkedIn Learning, then you don't have to provide any certificates.

You can request your LMDC certificate here, and upload your accompanying certificates as needed.
