Each topic offers ways in which American Legion Family members can advance the organization’s values and services in their local communities.

Following a Course Conclusion step in the training program, a 40-question exam is provided. Graduates can download and print a certificate of completion and order a Basic Training Graduate pin from Emblem Sales. Take the Basic Training course online at  www.legion.org/training.
