This is my ninth entry for Paula’s Thursday Inspiration. This week’s theme is train. I hope everyone will enjoy this post of mine. Here’s a link to Paula’s blog

A train is a form of transport consisting of a series of connected vehicles that generally runs along a railroad track to transport cargo or passengers. The word “train” comes from the Old French trahiner, derived from the Latin trahere meaning “to pull” or “to draw”

To train is to teach, or develop in oneself or others, any skills and knowledge that relate to specific useful competencies. Training has specific goals of improving one’s capability, capacity, productivity and performance. It forms the core of apprenticeships and provides the backbone of content at institutes of technology (also known as technical colleges or polytechnics). In addition to the basic training required for a trade, occupation or profession, observers of the labor-market recognize as of 2008 the need to continue training beyond initial qualifications: to maintain, upgrade and update skills throughout working life. People within many professions and occupations may refer to this sort of training as professional development.
