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

The only good training course
Is one that I don't have to waste my time attending. Working for the NHS I have to attend several courses on a regular yearly basis where the same old shit is splurged out. This can take anywhere between a half hour all the way up to a day long course.

Fuck knows why as I can put all the stuff that needs to be known in a few words for each course.

Health & Safety - Don't trip on wires or pull big heavy boxes down on to your head.
Fire Safety - Alarm rings, pick up phone/tablet from my desk, leave via closest exit and wait and see if building burns down.
Basic Life Support - Dial 999.
Information Governance - Don't tell confidential stuff to people who don't need to know or lose data that's unencrypted.
Conflict Resolution - Don't argue.
Equality & Awareness - Be nice to everyone you work with.
Fraud Awareness - Don't get caught otherwise grass up someone who is nicking stuff.
Manual Handling - Bend your knees.
Mental Capacity - Be careful around crazy people.
Infection Control - Wash your hands.

I lose a week of my life through sheer and utter boredom having to put up this.

and the reason why?
because we life in a claim culture where you can get sued left right and centre for things which should be common sense.

To be fair to them
The Information Governance course hasn't been taken in the slightest bit seriously.

Mental Capacity
I think its a bit more than that; that sounds a bit like the Mental Health Act.
