In the CVTS, the Continuing Vocational Training Survey, course training refers to all pre-planned formal training, which is arranged separately (not taking place besides work). Training has a programme and objectives and it is provided by trainers, teachers or lecturers.

Courses can be either internally managed (designed and managed by the enterprise itself) or externally managed (designed and managed by organisations not part of the enterprise).

Course training does not include planned periods of training, instruction or practical experience, planned learning through job rotation, exchanges or secondments, attendance at learning or quality circles, self-learning through open and distance learning, neither instruction at conferences, workshops, lectures and seminars.
