Thanks for reading my post.

Okay, as an OEM, I am creating a new mid-level Cognos v11 report authoring course.  It is absolutely not a basic class as published prerequisites will require attendees to already have experience with techniques like simple sorting, filtering, font control, etc.  This new class is also absolutely not an advanced class; I will be creating one of those later in the year.

The executive who gave me the assignment to create this course has made it clear that though the title needs to evoke the understanding that this course is not basic and at the same time not advanced, I have been told I cannot use the word "Intermediate" in the title.  ARGH!

I've search IBM's own Cognos courses as well as those offered by other third-parties in hopes of stumbling upon another relevant adjective without luck.  I've searched for "Intermediate" synonyms too without finding one that I think is applicable.

Anyone have any honest inputs on a word (or short string of words) which might accurately convey the mid-level-ness of this new course???

Thank you for sharing your inputs.

If you can expand from one word to two, you could perhaps use "Level Two" in this situation? Just a thought...

Meep!

Coolio - I appreciate the suggestion.

It's only a short stretch then to "The Next Generation".
