Traditional Learning vs. IST Skill Training

Education is all about learning the theory. Traditionally, an education may reinforce knowledge in which that you already have a foundation.
And that's where IST Skill training differs; IST training gives you the skills to do something rather than just know about something. Training can be specific to your need, your work experience or your skills-gap.
