Training is the process by which an individual or group of people convey or obtain skills relevant to a particular job or activity. Training generally deals with the physical and mental abilities associated with performing a job, sport, or activity. The words training, education and learning are often used interchangeably or synonymously, but each has very different meanings and applications.

Example: Although public school systems now provide middle school students with sex education, under no circumstance would school systems provide students with sex training.
