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

I recently worked as a social care person
for an autistic society. Part of the role was a weeks training, before we could work on site with clients. This was for obvious reasons, Autism is complex. Understanding about Fits, Drugs, anxiousness etc was the aim.

The group we had was brilliant. Very eclectic, with someone from every kind of background.

one Man, Ian, who was a big round African man. His english wasnt very good, and often would answer you with a smile, and 'yes' no matter the questions.... "How was your weekend Ian? " etc... He was nice though.

Sian (I think that was her name) was the girl we all perved at. She had the best @rse ive ever seen. All the blokes on the course agreed, and probably was the reason we were all there on time. she wore Tight jeans the whole week.

John. John was fat, and would sweat profously. even for sitting down. I remember doing so self defence moves with him and accidentally touching his back. It was a river of sweat. which struck me as odd, as all he had done is stand up prior to me touching him.

Steve. Ill be blunt. Steve was a scally. spoke with a harsh scouse accent, and typically had the decorum of naughty a schoolkid. and used the words "blert" and "Lad" on the end of sentances depending if he liked you or not. Steve bluntly intrupted the trainer mid video to ask when we would be going to Alton Towers - as his mate - so it seemed - had given an account of this job, like it was the dream job, and that all you do is fun. "When do you get to go on holiday with them?" was his next question.

Sure these things happen, but usually to the people who have 7+year experience, with probably medical training....not 48 hrs after training.

Steve cheated in the end of the week exam, his Knee wobbling, he leaned over to other peoples answers. laughed and then yelped out that he didnt have a 'fucking clue' at which the trainer stood up and sat next to him. He passed the exam funnily enough.

1 hr after I passed the training, I went straight on shift as I had heard a few horror stories. I went to the main site and walked into a room with lots of people walking around, with no tell tale signs of who was client and who was worker. 3 hrs later I was chasing a man into the local Co-op to find him at the back of the store hitting a box of Daz with one hand whilst shaking a mr Muscle spray in the other.

Free tee and coffee though ;)

a social care person for an autistic society?
Isn't that another name for a 'b3ta moderator'?

That's how you pronounce "@rse", isn't it?

Don't be an atsshole.
On a tangent I've got linkification on and it turns "@" into some interesting twitter users!

If you want to say "arse" on the internet, just say "arse".
You won't get jailed for it.

Not yet, anyway.

"Recently"? Your terminology is years out of date.
And 7+ years before accompanying someone on a holiday? Average time at one setting in this sector is about a year. People with more seven years experience are rare as hen's teeth.
