In all that we do, whether for work or for a hobby, we need to attain a certain amount of knowledge about it before we know about it. There are two key ways to gain knowledge in life, which are education and training. Education is pursuing knowledge about something. This is usually gained through classes or reading about the subject.

Training is also gaining knowledge, but it is through action. Between the two, training is more hands on that education is. Another difference between the two is the length of time. Education can be years long, but training is much shorter, taking only days or months.
