Training : def: Getting assistance to learn how to get up to speed using software (programs) that you are not familiar with now. Also relates to learning your way around your system and what it can do for you, how it can complete the tasks you would like it to perform, as well as just feeling more comfortable around it and getting a feeling that YOU are in control and not the computer.
There are an amazing number of software titles out there, and as much as the software companies try to make things "user friendly", they sometimes miss the mark and end up making things too complicated or present too many "helpful" things staring at you on your screen. Software companies expend a great amount of effort trying to make their software titles easy to use and they try to guess what you want to do and how you would like to do it. It's a noble effort, but unfortunately, different people have different ideas of what they want their programs to do for them and how they would like the program to act. Sometimes it's best to keep it simple, but with simplicity in the user interface (what you see on the screen when you are ready to use the program), it ends up hiding the program's true potential of what it can do for you beneath menu after menu. On the other hand, filling your screen with buttons, shortcuts, tabs and the like makes you feel like it's cluttered, and you end up not knowing what a majority of the controls can do for you.
