I'm looking to segment users to either go down a path where there is a wizard-like UI that walks the user through a process. The alternative is a path for advanced users who are already familiar with the process.

"Which Icon" questions are now off topic - see this meta discussion -… – ChrisF Mar 2 '12 at 17:37
Hi Audra. ChrisF is right, we can't really help with icon requests. Is it specifically an icon you are after or is it a question about how to present a choice to the user as to the routes they can take? – JonW Mar 2 '12 at 20:13
As JonW implies a question about how to express the beginner/expert user distinction could be an acceptable question but we don't like questions that are more like "what's an icon for X?" – Ben Brocka Mar 2 '12 at 20:20

The iconography style should relate closely to the type of Web domain you are working into. I can give your some narrative examples -

Say, if it were for Sports (not binded for sports though!) a beginner who would be one with a safety belt around in water, whereas an expert with a swimming pose in water.

Metaphors are best way to demonstrate this scenario of Beginners vs Experts - It could be equivalent to a front view of a scooter with "L" board against a speeding motorcycle (expert).
