Certification is the major component of the Zeta Organizational Leadership (ZOL) Program. This training is designed to prepare sorors for elected and appointed offices at all levels of the sorority. However, sorors who desire to improve their leadership skills are encouraged to register. Sorors will complete a nationally recognized leadership assessment and receive instruction from a national trainer on how to interpret and build on the results.


ZOL certification training will be conducted in the following five phases: Phase I: Leadership Assessment; Phase II: Book Review; Phase III: On-site training; Phase IV: Leadership Portfolio; Phase V: Webinars. All phases must be satisfactorily completed within the specified time frames to receive certification.
