[uf-discuss] Training events in hResume

Whether an individual chooses to learn anything or not, learning is an
inherent goal of education and training. That can be abused or not
taken advantage of at an individual level, of which the collective
really can't do anything about. Technically, the goal is some sort of
learning process. That's my take, colorful though my academic career
may have been... ;-)

That said, I was thinking of 'type' used similarly to 'class="type"'
as in hcards for telephone or adr.

<span class="tel">
 <span class="type">home</span>:
 <span class="value">+1.415.555.1212</span>

For education/training, this could be:

<span class="education">
     <span class="type">Secondary</span>
          <span class="value">Red Brick Secondary School</span>
     <span class="type">University</span>
          <span class="value">University of Manchester</span>
   <span class="type">Training</span>
          <span class="value">Cisco Network God Certification</span>

Title could be used. I've used the title attribute with 'abbr' to
denote the type of telephone number:

<div class="tel"><abbr class="type" title="cell">Mobile phone:</abbr>
<abbr class="value" title="+12223334444">222.333.444</abbr></div>

So a mix might work with this idea, too.
