When I see training and education, I see learning. I attended schools
that were better than others; I've experienced training that was
better than others. Both training and education are experiences that
people enter with the goal of learning something once they've
completed them. Some training leads to certification as does some
education. There is online education and there is online training.

I really think the lines are being blurred between the two and so far,
I can't see the benefit of creating a new hResume class for training.
Not yet, at least. It's a type of education, so perhaps a
"class=education" type="training, online, apprentice, journeyman,
certification, secondary, university, graduate, etc." could be

Maybe using "type" is a way to meet existing traditional differences
while allowing for changes in the education/training environment?
