I think sometimes it is good to ensure the language and terminology being used in your resume is similar to that being used in the job posting to which you are responding. The person initially seeing your resume at the company may be less technical than the person you finally work for, so being able to express your skills in their langauge can be helpful.
And, please, please, please, research the companies you interview with. You are better prepared to answer the interviewers questions and it demonstrates that you are interested enough in the company and job to spend some time up front.

if you are good in fundamentals, doesnt matter where you write about courses in your resume, either before or after the work experience, prepare well and you might land up in the job. But to answer your question straight, training shouldbe after your work experience.
