Training Award Requirements
The communications track for Toastmasters is fairly strait-forward from what I’ve seen of it so far. For the leadership track, however, rather than waste a lot of time, you’ll want some guidance from the material below. The material in the advanced manuals may change over time but you’ll get a slip along with your CL award once you finish that manual which will give you the most recent details.
Competent Leader (CL)
In this manual it’s very easy to do much more work than you need to in order to complete it. Although it’s all good practice, you’ll most likely want to finish this one up efficiently and move on to the next level. In order to do this, we recommend that you use the CL matrix – see your club officers for a copy of this.
