While your training does a lot to cover not even clicking on links in emails going to bogus sites, I feel there should be some specific training (or at least training that goes a bit further) to cover the attempts to get employees to provide credentials to spoofed cloud based services like Office 365 or Google services. These are by far the thing we see the most--attempts to fool employees to provide their email and password into a service that looks like Office 365. We've also seen a lot of our contacts (customers and vendors) get duped by this where someone in their company has provided their cloud service credentials to a non-legit site and suddenly the hacker is inside their cloud email sending us emails from contacts that we otherwise treat as legit--and they can often look very convincing since they study the person's email patterns, how they word emails, who they speak with in our company to make the emails look legit.
Seeing some training modules that speak a bit more specifically about how these credential harvesting sites work and then how they're used to study emails, how people correspond with key contacts, who people stay in contact with and so forth (after gaining access to someone's cloud email) would go a long ways for company's like ours who use services like Office 365. We have on a several occasions seen people give up their Office 365 credentials to these types of sites, and it's alarming, to say the least.
