Education Tracks


The Toasmasters educational program is divided into two tracks – a communication track and a leadership track. Members are encouraged to participate in both tracks. The two tracks are not mutually exclusive and you can work in both at the same time. Both also provide for specific accomplishments.

The awards and their requirements appear in the chart below. The diagram shows the award progression in each track.
