    I think Education is general – the stuff universities/schools/colleges label as ‘core curriculum’.

    Training is what one receives through whatever major discipline(s) one selects to specialize in. Professional education obviously goes here too. (The difference between professional school and advanced work in a Major/Specialist discipline is not so great, or as different, as many would have us suppose.)

    Finally, Learning is the stuff of ‘Electives’ – it is meant to be fun, interesting and open avenues for leisure pursuits in later life.

    (Incidentally, I do not believe in assigning grades for Elective courses; let alone anything other than something simple, like Pass/Fail, for the General Education, i.e. ‘core’, ones.)
