How Can I Become LEDS Certified?
LEDS, the Law Enforcement Data System, is a database created for law enforcement records such as warrants, protection orders, stolen property, criminal histories, and other vital investigative files.  In order to become certified in the use of LEDS, you must be a current employee for an agency with LEDS access.  Employees wishing to gain access to LEDS must also get fingerprinted for CJIS security within 30 days. 
You may have seen a job posting which says "preference will be given to applicants who are LEDS certified." Unfortunately, LEDS certification is not available to citizens since access to the LEDS database is required to complete the training process and that access is limited to law enforcement agencies.  Basically this is a process that your employer needs to sponsor you through; applicants who are already LEDS certified would likely have employment history with other law enforcement agencies.
Criminal convictions which could preclude from LEDS certification are list under OAR 257-015-0050(6):
(6) "Background Checks of Terminal Operators Required" Policies for access to the FBI-NCIC system require background screening of all terminal operators with access to the NCIC system. For efficiency and consistency, the key elements of the NCIC background screening policies are also adopted for all LEDS access, as follows:
(a) Appropriate Background investigations, including a check of LEDS and NCIC fugitive warrant files, the Oregon computerized criminal history (CCH) system, and the FBI Interstate Identification Index (III), must be conducted on all terminal operators with LEDS access. To assure positive identification, submission of a completed applicant fingerprint card to the FBI Identification Division through the Oregon State Police Identification Services Section is also required;
(b) If the applicant is found to be a fugitive or to be the subject of a current prosecution, access will be denied. If the applicant has been convicted of a crime which could have resulted in a sentence to a Federal or State penitentiary, access will be denied;
(c) Exceptions to denials based upon prior criminal convictions may be made in extraordinary circumstances upon application by the user agency to the Superintendent of State Police setting forth the circumstances. The Superintendent or his/her designee will maintain a central file where such exception authorizations shall be filed.
