It gets even worse when teaching staff don't have any knowledge of Olympus cameras. I've come into contact with two tutors in the last couple of years, in courses that failed for one reason or other, neither of them had ever handled an Olympus.
I agree entirely, thats what I was thinking. It might be a good long term investment for Olympus to offer equipment for free and maybe even some free courses?
