That's a *very* optimistic reading of the studies :D

Looking at practical information, like first aid knowledge (which I know
something about), we see that less than half the course content is
recalled, on average, after 6 months. Compare with the typical
lifeguard, who uses that knowledge often, where recall goes up to ~80%
even at 2 years. This is why lifeguards recertify every 2 years.

I wonder if studies have looked specifically at IT knowledge... But I'm
studying for exams, I won't trawl psycinfo :)
