This is a question Training courses, seminars and conferences

Inspirational or a waste of precious slacking-off time? I once went on a buzzword bingo-laden training course which ended up with my being held at gunpoint in public. Could have gone better, to be honest. Tell us your tales from either side of the lectern

She played her part.
I used to work as a carer, working with people who had intellectual disabilities. Often some of our clients could be aggressive, violent & abusive.

To deal with that we had to take part in a "defence strategy course" once a year called P.A.R.T. - Professional Assault Response Training.

The instructors for this course were my coordinator and manager. She was an absolute bitch and he was a wanker.
They emphasised that they would be role-playing to highlight situations and how we might deal with them, and that they would be making it as real as possible to show the scenarios as accurately as possible.

We finished early on the 2nd day because my coordinator broke my managers thumb whilst they were showing us a grabbing/grappling situation and how to evade or avoid it.

We ALL signed his "Get Well" card & I made sure I congratulated her on her "acting skills"
