So in a way the OP has to make his luck by working hard and if that is taking the course they offer so be it.
There were other links posted as well other than the one I posted to fast track him into an agent position as well I was merely just giving him another option. I have no clue how many NHLPA agents have taken this course that is something the OP will have to do research on it is a good question to ask them and I am glad you brought it up.
I had a law degree and was doing international deals so it was not as if I was inexperienced in contract and financial matters.
My recommendation is get a combined business/law degree and then you have something to fall back on if you do not make it as an agent.
