    There is every chance I'll get my first DSLR from Jessops and they offer a decent reduction on their beginners courses if you buy a camera from them. Has anyone been on one? Would you recommend them?

    Thanks

    Never been on one so can't offer an opinion.
    I wonder if anyone else here has been on one?

    No - not been on one - I saw the post and looked for info. on course content to give advice but there wasn't much.

    At the end of the day no harm can result in going on one.

    When I started more serious photography you had to learn how to put the film in and how to take it out. Choose the aperture and exposure time to match the metering having set the film speed. Focus and off you went.

    Basically that's all I do now with any camera. Most of the thousands of configuration options you get on a modern camera I disregard. I can see how someone new will be totally overwhelmed not knowing which 5% is important and which 95% isn't so a very basic introduction to which button does what could be useful.
