Education & Training

Alex Cenem

The Lexico Oxford English dictionary describes the word education as "a body of knowledge acquired" and the process of receiving or giving systematic instruction", but my favourite description is "an enlightening experience".

Nowadays, there are many ways to learn something. Still, in my experience, no book or research will ever give you the real-life experience necessary for one to really understand, know a topic entirely.

It would be almost impossible for me to list all my enlightening life experiences here; therefore, I am only adding a list of my studies, courses and training adventures.
