Requirements for Completing Multiple Education Awards

DTM x2, x3, x4…

The following rules apply to any Toastmaster who wishes to complete multiple communication and/or leadership awards through the Toastmasters educational program:

  • You must complete all of the requirements each time you receive an award. This means that in order to receive a second DTM, you must complete another CC, ACB, ACS, ACG, CL, ALB and ALS. However, you need not complete your first award before you begin working on a second one. Example: You are permitted to start working on a second ACB before you finish your first ACB, but you must first complete a second CC before you can receive your second ACB.
    • Note: Only one award of each type per member per club per Toastmasters year is counted for credit in the Distinguished Club Program.
  • Each time you complete the series of awards on the communication track (ACB, ACS and ACG), you must complete two new Advanced Communication manuals for each award. This means that each time you earn your ACG award, you will have completed six different Advanced Communication manuals – two for ACB, two for ACS and two for ACG.
  • When you repeat an award on the Communication track, you are permitted to repeat the manuals used for a previously earned communication award. For example: If you complete The Entertaining Speaker (226A) and Speaking to Inform (226B) for your first ACB, you may repeat these manuals for credit towards your second ACB or any other communication award that you are repeating.

    You can not repeat any Advanced Communication Manuals while working toward a single award (ACB, ACS, ACG). For example: You can not complete The Entertaining Speaker (226A) twice for the same ACB.
