American Legion Extension Institute now available online
The American Legion’s official training program for officers, members, Legion College applicants and those who simply want to expand their knowledge of the nation’s largest veterans service organization is now available online.
The American Legion Extension Institute has been rewritten, updated, streamlined and enhanced with videos, digital photos, clickable links, a historical timeline and additional features. To register and take the course, visit www.legion.org/alei. The program is designed to take less than two hours to complete. It is divided into six sections, with a quiz at the end of each, followed by a final exam.
The sections closely follow the Four Pillars of service for the organization. They include:
- History & Organization
- Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation
- National Security
- Children & Youth
Upon completion, a participant must pass a final online exam to receive a digital certificate of recognition; a lapel/cap pin will also be delivered to those who successfully complete the course. The names of those who have passed will be recorded and indexed at The American Legion National Headquarters. Graduates will have the option to click a box upon completion to recognize their accomplishment on The American Legion national website at www.legion.org.
The online course is $4.95 for members of The American Legion and Sons of The American Legion. The registration fee is $9.95 for non-members. Payment can be accepted securely and conveniently on the course registration page.
The American Legion Extension Institute online training program replaces the series of printed booklets that had been printed and sold through National Headquarters.
