Security Training  
I just finished a mandatory online "Computer Security Training" course.

As far as usefulness and respect for my intelligence went, it was more or less equivalent to a mandatory "How To Put Your Shoes On The Correct Feet And Tie Them Without Linking Them Together" course.

Oh, I hate those. We're required to retake our annually. Also an annual ethics refresher, I guess in case we (1) decided to start taking bribes from customers and (2) could then be persuaded not to.

Yeah, we also have the Annual Ethics Refresher (in case we forget that we aren't supposed to take bribes) and the Annual Sexual Harassment Refresher (in case we forget that we aren't supposed to deck the office with posters similar to this userpic). At least there's some utility in the Annual Financial Interests Report (since there's actually a real possibility of changed circumstances).

The sexual-harrassment training is always a disappointment. If they're not going to teach us how to do it, they shouldn't call it that.

I think having such trainings is the norm in the workplace these days. HR needs something to show that "yes, we've instructed our employees this" in order to cover their you-know-whats in case somthing should go awry.

Too bad you can't MST3K those films while watching them.

Now, if the films you were watching were produced by Video Arts, they might be outright entertaining.
