the epicurean institute in umbria...worth the money?

Hello All

My sister is interested in becoming a sommelier, and thought their program sounded appealing. I know a lot of cooking schools and such tend not to mean much to restaurants looking for employees, is it different or somms? the course promises certification from the ais (Italian Association of Sommeliers). has anyone either completed or contemplated this program? is it a huge waste of time and money to certify in this way? any feedback from somms, restaurant owners, or people who have taken the course would be much appreciated!
