My main language is not English so I want to hear the opinion of some English speakers with this one. I need to choose between “XYZ Training” and “XYZ Learning” for a company name. The company is a fictitious computer education company for adults. I need the name for a marketing presentation.

Strange question. I would say training because it's more associated with adult professionals, and learning is more associated with children.

The most common usage for the words (in the United States) anyway, are these:


Learning is done in schools, typically by children but sometimes by adults, (like in a high school, college, or elementary school) or is something that happens naturally or by accident (George learned a valuable life lesson when he accidentially blew up an egg in the microwave).

Training is when someone is being instructed to perform a certain task, for example build computers, fight in the military, etc. or using a skill better, like shooting a gun, cooking, etc.

Training is also used by athletes for a competition. Weight Training, Endurance Training, etc. Getting your body ready to perform at a higher level is also training.
