Traditional Education Program

The traditional Toastmasters Education Program (also called the “legacy education program” or “tracks”) includes a Communication Track and a Leadership Track.

Members began by completing the Competent Communicator and Competent Leader manuals. Then they progressed through more advanced manuals to complete the higher levels of communication and leadership.

The advanced levels are designated as bronze, silver, and gold. The highest and most prestigious award is the Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) award.

Note: This program was closed to new members in early 2018 and will be discontinued June 30, 2020. Toastmasters has replaced it with the modernized Pathways Learning Experience.
