    If the client says you have to sit through something before you can access their system, then it is a prerequisite for you to do your work. It's not an IR35 flag.
    This is it though - the course is scheduled 5 working days before my contract is due to end. I've already been here for 2 months with full access to both offices. Granted, I'm expecting a renewal, but there's no agreement yet.

    Obviously I'll do it anyway, I'd rather be bored than penniless. I guess.

    I was talking about HR workshops, which is what the OP asked about, not online courses.

    I had to go through the internal HR and safety stuff at the private airport where my current gig is - learning about their on site fire service was pretty cool. I'd actually really like them to put me through the training to drive around the actual airport / on the runway; but it's fairly unlikely to happen.

    Online courses were mandated by HR and some of them were real-time e.g. skype. I tried to get out of them because I knew they were fecking boring.

    Skype is fine, because you can watch the Sweeney at the same time.
