The training is accessible after starting up the game for the first time and selecting to "Play Game" from the main menu where you can select either choose the minigame, server, or to play the main game.
Then on the next screen, choose "Proving Grounds" to access the training modes.
Now select "Tutorials" to the left of all the tanks at the bottom of the screen.

There are 5 different training options. You only need to do the first one "Basic Training" for the achievement.
There are 4 steps that the game pretty much talks you through:
1. Vehicle Control Basics: for me, the hardest part I had was actually learning how to drive in a straight line. The cn_LS controls ALL directions of movement, so you have to push exactly in the straight direction of up or down otherwise you'll be turning all over the map!
2.Firing and Destroying Enemies: This is simply point your gun at the enemy and pull the cn_RT. Note, you DO NOT have to be in the circled area to kill the enemy--it will go to next checkpoint if you kill the enemy. Another very handy tip! Wait for the gun turret to turn, then press cn_RB while the aiming circle on the screen is aiming at or close to the enemy tank and your gun will auto-lock onto it! Now, after reloading, you can just press cn_RT without actually aiming and your gun will take out the tank almost without you doing anything.
3. Penetration Zones: Intro to Tank Armor 101. You're up against a Tier 8 German tank, which has a TON of armor on the front. You can simply press cn_RB while looking at it again though, then drive around beside or behind it and fire away!
4. View Range and Leading Targets: This was interesting--in the old Training course, the previous tank's gun fired too slow to use cn_RB. I found that with the M4A3E8 you can use cn_RB no problem to get the kill. You might want to actually aim manually though for practice.

Complete those 4 steps in less than 20 minutes and you get 6,000 silver, 250 gold, and 300 free tank XP! Enjoy!
