Different training formats and different learning opportunities

Seminar 
A seminar is a training session that serves to communicate or reinforce knowledge in small groups. Seminars are run by a seminar leader or trainer and have an average of 15 to 20 participants. 
  • Basic seminar: For teaching the basics and giving a basic overview of the subject. Aimed at beginners. 
  • Advanced seminar: Either builds on the basic seminar, providing more extensive, more detailed information on a subject or is aimed at participants with greater knowledge or practical experience. 
  • Expert seminar: Aimed at experienced experts and managers with comprehensive knowledge of the subject. 
Course 
A course is a series of training sessions in which a small group obtains in-depth knowledge in a subject area, often including practical training. It generally consists of a scheduled series of (seminar) units within a subject or a comprehensive, relatively self-contained area of the subject. Normally a certificate or record of achievement is awarded on completion. 
  • Training course: A training course is a series of training sessions lasting more than three days in which a small group obtains in-depth knowledge in a subject area, often including practical training. It generally consists of a scheduled series of (seminar) units within a subject or a comprehensive, relatively self-contained area of the subject. Normally a certificate or record of achievement is awarded on completion. 
Round table 
Course format with seating at a round table to emphasise that all participants are equal and can discuss content under the supervision of an expert. Numbers are limited to 20 participants. 
 
Workshop 
A workshop is a session in which a small group focuses strongly on a subject for a limited period of time. It is characterised by a collaboration-based, moderated approach working towards a shared objective. 
 
Conference 
A conference is a meeting for a large number of participants (more than 50) working in a specific subject area. It can last one or more days and has multiple speakers. 
 
Specialist conference 
In terms of speakers and number of participants, specialist conferences sit somewhere between seminars and conferences. They generally last one day and have multiple speakers. A structured schedule is not necessary, but does make sense. The content is generally communicated through a series of presentations.
