Yeah, that is distressingly common in the tech industry. The best he can do is slog through it, as most of them are set up to prevent you from fast-forwarding through the presentations. I don't know if it's just "we need to have material for all levels of experience including non-technical people", or what, but it's pretty common...
Yep. Encountered it with my mandatory yearly IT security training. I wound up kicking off each video segment (there were 20), muting the sound, and going on to do something else. I still got all the quiz questions correct.
