A 4 day class? Is that the one where you go to the HQ to learn about there higher end line. After the training you can purchase some items other EC's can't? If that's the one it might be good.
The most I've done is a day here and 1/2 day there localy put on by the supplier. It does not hurt. Something I don't like is it's 1/2 training and 1/2 selling you on the products. Never seems like they get deep enough in the training for me. More of a product overview and features. Some of the local training was done by a maketing company. So you have a sales person telling you how to hook them up and sell them.
Sorta like I know how to hook up a Maestro dimmer but never really figured out what wire does what to make it work or troubleshoot.

If your talking about 4 days in Penn for Homeworks, go ahead. Mainly its a primer on programming, and yes, a lot of sales training. I have not gone for it, don't have time, too busy installing nuts and bolts. We have one PM who went, and does most of our programming, I mess around with it, its not hard, but I assume it would be easier if I had gone. Although I assume most of the actual "learning" happens after they give a password to on-line tech support.

I have done the training in PA for HomeWorks, as well as training in Virginia for their Sivoia QED shading systems and the training in florida for RadioRa. Also I have gone to their road shows where it's a re-visit of the seminar courses.
Lutron has been a large part of my business and a good source on non-lighting control leads.
If you can get in, take the classes. It is well worth the time invested.
