Eh...wasting time on unnecessary requirements is a problem (not the biggest IMHO), and CBTs are small fish when compared to the endless ORE-ORI-UCI-ASEV-rinse-repeat cycle, dog-and-pony shows for DVs, re-writing regs/SSS/OPRs to add that extra return after the properly formatted date, etc. With the new Tier 2A/2B scheme that covers most of the CBTs, it's really only every 2 years that you have to accomplish large amount...I think there's only 6 you have to do yearly (plus whatever is required by local regs).
So I guess I feel your sentiment but disagree with the scale of the problem...click through as fast as possible and be done with it.
Actually, depending on your deployment cycle, you end up doing those two-year CBTs every 6 months (to be current all the way through the deployment, then to be current for the next ORI, then to be current again for your next deployment).
Of course, part of the problem is that our training managers insist on making people current THROUGH the deployment...when the reg only requires you to be current the day you set foot in the AOR.
Stupidity is like nuclear power. It can be used for good or evil...and you don't want to get it on you.
