Training is teaching, or developing in oneself or others, any skills and knowledge that relate to specific useful competencies. It forms the core of apprenticeships and provides the backbone of content at technical colleges and polytechnics. In addition to the basic training required for a trade, occupation or profession, observers of the labor-market recognize the need to continue training beyond initial qualifications: to maintain, upgrade and update skills throughout working life. People within many professions and occupations may refer to this sort of training as professional development.
The development of awareness, skill, knowledge and attitude competencies through instruction/teaching (Off-the-Job Training) or practice (On-the-Job Training OJT). (Similar definition used by Queensland government)
