Do you think the new Gnomon online courses are worth it?

Just read about the new Gnomon online course format, which changes things to be realtime, with classes and teacher-student interaction by webcam made possible. What do you guys think about this?

I have a few years of experience in a tiny, tiny vfx house and am currently looking for a job. I want to work in the big companies as a Lighting TD, but I have no lighting work I can proudly show. I need to make my reel but, to be honest, I don't know if I have what it takes to make it. This is my latest contribution to the Lighting Challenges section of CGS:

Because of this, the Lighting and Rendering course atracted me, but I'm unsure if it's worth it. I know I have some skills but some kind of course seems great to consolidate them. But the thing I need most, is some kind of advice/mentoring so that I can be aware of where my skills are at and how I can better myself. I'm totally lost right now and being without a job for a whole year hurts a lot, as I'm not getting any younger and feel my life is passing by. Well that looks a bit dramatic, sorry, but I am kind of desperate.

PS: about the new Gnomon format:
