The one I see missing in the PDC is one they teach defense contractors (DC) and the military... RAGT (Random Acronym Generation Techniques.... Only available in Super High Intensity Training

Getting cranky in your old age Glen  :roll:

Thought I would post a funny to break the ice on this fine forum, not meant to cause upset.  :?

Stainless1, I have had plenty of Super High Intensity Training over the past few years, and have learnt more RGAs (Randomly Generated Acronyms) than I care to remember.  :-)

Anyway, I will get around to posting in the "introduce yourself" eventually.... and I will keep on enjoying your great forum....

Is crisis management not listed because it's the only course that most managers ever actually get, leading them to believe that they must create crisis in order to provide justification for their position?
Ah, this is obviously some strange usage of the word 'safe' that I wasn't previously aware of.  Douglas Adams
