List specific, clear and concise learning objectives and/or outcomes for the course that are both behavioral and measurable.

To "understand" or "have familiarity with" something is not measurable or observable. Verbs like "describe, name, explain, define, recall, list, restate, role-play, summarize, and write" are the most common used to describe what the attendee will actually be able to demonstrate after attending the training.)
