Re: * Company mandatory training material

I would like to be able to answer you, if I could remember mandatory training stuff beyond five minutes after having took the final test.

Jokes aside, most of them are designed in ways they exercise just your short-term memory, and put more emphasis on useless details than on real, useful information - often by design, I'm afraid.

And yes, there was IT security training as well, and what is worse, that requires Flash to be installed company wide, even by users who don't know how to enable/disable it as needed.

I never understood why the consultants who create that stuff love stupid animations and other effects that just get in the way. The worst offender was one that displayed text line by line in a slow teletype way.
