From a purely personal point of view no. I really don't see the point, if an airline you choose to apply for finds you acceptable they will train you according to their criteria for which in most cases you will get paid.

Applications to airlines are very competitive and companies such as this know only too well there will always be those who will use these courses to try to assure themselves of being accepted The fact is it will not
guarantee anything.

The price is a lot of money for two days and it would be best to find people who have been on the course or more specifically whether it has benefited any of them although I admit that would not be easy.

Verdict: In your shoes, I would keep the money and concentrate on planning my application for the airline for which I was applying.
