Art of Naming Training Classes
So, we're trying to name a training class right now, and we're stumbling all over ourselves with a variety of ideas. Got me thinking... what goes into naming a training class? Here's what I've come up with so far....
Audience -- The name should be understandable by the people who will take the class.
Tone -- The name should fit the tone of your corporate culture and the content of the class.
Existing Classes -- The name should either be congruent with existing names... or if this is a complete diversion in format, method, content, etc., then possibly should be significantly different than existing class names to convey that difference.
Cardinality -- Some classes need to be identified by an order, such as Level 1 and Level 2.
I'm going to stop, and hopefully you'll take it from here. What do you think should be considered?
BTW... we're trying to name a new classroom class focused on becoming familiar with the features added to our software in the last few releases. We decided on Workshop because it does have a distinctly different format than our existing classes, and workshop felt right for the format. But we're struggling here... any suggestions?
