And you won't know until you take it. What's the worst part about taking it? You're out $150 and a day or two. What's the worst part about not taking it? Potentially missing a skill that may save your life. Places up here give a15-20% discount on gear for 90 days after you pass the course. It costs me $170 and I then saved $400 on gear.
Take the course, then decide if its stupid. You can't judge the unknown opportunity cost.
