- assets provided or available for use only in the course of training. For example a computer used during the training period, which is not used for personal purposes.
- assets provided or available for use in the course of training and in the performance of the employee’s duties, but not otherwise used. For example a computer used for work, and for training purposes, which is not otherwise used.
