The First Steps to Take in Pathways

We encourage all members to take these steps. If you get stuck, be sure to get in touch with our VP Education (VPE) for additional support. Our club leaders are here to also help members make the most of their Pathways experience.

Step 1: Login to the Toastmasters International website.

Step 2: Enable pop-ups for Base Camp.

  • One of the tricky things you need to do the very first time you login to Base Camp (the Pathways online system) is to enable pop-ups in your web browser.
  • You should only have to do this once for the computer and web browser you use to access your account.
  • The Pathways system involves interactive presentations and other tutorial features that use pop-up windows, making this a necessary step.

Step 4: Take the Pathways assessment.

  • It’s time to choose your first path. By completing the online assessment, you can evaluate your personal interests and get a recommended selection of paths.
  • Note that you can still choose any path you want. In fact, it’s a good idea to identify paths you’re interested in prior to taking the assessment. That way, you can be prepared to select an alternative path, even if you don’t like the results you get from the assessment.
