It’s always good to see new training opportunities like this pop up. Though the balance of 3rd level training in games vs. jobs in games just got even more out of kilter. Not much has changed since the 80s, we are still training people for export.

I’m a big fan of condensed courses in 3d software over longer more detailed courses. What ever gets you creating art for your portfolio quickest right? Though you would probably get more from these condensed courses if you had already dabbled in the software being taught. I did a two week crash course in Maya in the UK after a month messing with it and was able to use it in my job as a 3d games artist, even though I’d only used Max prior to that. It was a great course.
