What is the hierarchy of Treehouse training? I see "Stages" and "Tracks", please define. Is a topic a course?
I've embarked on Front End Web Development training and after a great deal of digging and exploring I'm seeing "Tracks" and have since discovered I have just completed "Stages". So, it seems there are 14 tracks to a topic (or course?).
I am also wondering if there will be recommendations to successive training in other topics (once this current course of study is completed) or will it be up to me to make that determination?

Nope! The Front End Web Development training you're referring to is actually referred to as a "Track." Within that, there are "Courses" such as CSS Foundations. Courses are made up of a number of "Stages" (like Getting Started with CSS) that contain a number of "Steps" to complete.
So the hierarchy goes (from largest to most specific): Track > Course > Stage > Step
The tracks lead you down a logical path of courses to complete. As for what track to complete after the Front End Dev. track, that's largely up to you. Either Web Design or a more specific development language track would make sense.
