What is the difference between Security Education and Security Training?

The objective of education is usually to gain knowledge about principles, concepts, and facts and to develop analytic and problem solving skills. The materials learned and the skills developed through education can be used by the student in a variety of settings.

Training is typically concerned with gaining a skill or set of skills specific to a particular job. Effectiveness is gauged by comparing the student's performance of particular job-related tasks before and after receiving the training.
