The Toastmasters Educational Programme - Communication and Leadership tracks

The educational programme is at the heart of a Toastmasters club. It is divided into two tracks: one Communication and the other Leadership. These are not mutually exclusive. Indeed it is recommended that you participate in both tracks simultaneously.

When you become a member of Toastmasters International you will be sent a joining pack. This includes the two manuals to get you started in both tracks: the Competent Communication manual and the Competent Leadership manual.


Communication Track

Members working in this track learn and practice communication skills. The first award is:

You will receive a Competent Communicator Certificate and, if you wish, World Headquarters will send your employer a letter about your achievement.

Other information

Repeating awards

You can do any award any number of times.

For a subsequent DTM - you do not need to do all other awards again, only ACG and AL.

For a subsequent ACB, ACS, ACG, ALB or ALS - you do not have to re-do the precedent award requirement/s. (A precedent award requirement is one where 'achieved' is the first word of the requirement.)
As an example: to do a subsequent ACB you do not need to do another CC, because your first CC counts as the 'achieved Competent Communicator award' requirement for all subsequent ACBs.

For any subsequent award except DTM - all requirements not relating to precedent awards have to be done anew.
As an example: to do a subsequent ALB you need to have served a different six months as a club officer.

Clubs receive credit for only one type of educational award per member per year in the Distinguished Club Programme. (Although of course you will receive credit personally for all awards you have achieved.)
As an example: if you complete two ACBs in the same Toastmasters year the second ACB cannot be credited to the same club in that year, although if you are also a member of another club they could receive credit for it.

Old Competent Leader award
As from 1st July 2008 this is no longer awarded.
