Getting hands-on time with the TVs and the calibration gear was utterly worth the grueling 11-hour session (the level-2 class attendees voted to stay late and get a head-start on the next day's work).
We had two students per workstation, which made for plenty of hands-on time. I suspect the next two days will be a bit more challenging than day one, but I'm confident I'll walk out of that workshop with the skills I was looking for. It's definitely not for diletants.
