I've learnt in my short academic career a lot of degrees don't teach you what you can't learn on your own. A degree merely gets your foot in the door and gives you a title. You can learn almost anything on your own time but obviously, if we're talking using high end machinery or programming that you cannot get in your own home, then yah, it's probably worth consideration. Still, you have to be careful. Many people may think there are shortcuts, sometimes there is, but if a program or whatever is short term, the job security and information you require isn't top notch either. You'll have to keep improving your craft and get your name out there even if you do the program. As someone said above me, volenteer work is a good option to get contacts if you're willing to do it.
