No, but reading one of the headlines of "we'll teach you how to become a skilled photographer in one day" doesn't float my boat.
You can "learn" things but actually applying them in day to day life is very different.
Since I started doing this properly I've grown as a photographer. How? By getting out with my camera as often as possible in a variety of situations.
There are some things that can not be taught and one of them is experience.
Best advice would be to take what you can from a course. Get everything written down. Get out there and start getting in your head. Then if if you feel you need more, go find a more advanced course.
In the end though it does come down to getting out there.
Back in 2010 before I left the UK for France, I spent nearly every day photographing for two months. It drove my missus insance but it started paying dividends as I progressed very quickly.
