+1 on this. Nothing beats getting hands-on experience. Investing money in
hardware is a better option than joining a training course. Get a system, if you
already have one, get another :)
...or since you mentioned you were interested in networking, search ebay or
something similar for cheap second hand routers and start hacking. For
instance, installing and configuring and managing (for example implementing
traffic shaping or security) using OpenWRT or Tomato (or any one of these) on
an old wireless router can be a learning and gratifying experience which would
never be taught in any training course.
If you already have hardware or if you /do/ want to join a course, I'd suggest
taking up a hobby class instead. Expanding your field of interests helps in many
subtle ways, including career progression.
