It's a dilemma for sure - you're not just learning software, you need to tell a story effectively and at a high level. Learning Vegas for instance (which I love) and becoming a great Vegas Editor could be a problem if your demo reel lands you an Avid gig and you've never touched the NLE! You're in for a major shock.

I think a class that gave students hands-on experience with a variety of NLE's and their strengths and weaknesses might be cool as long as they had ample time to actually learn the program well enough to run it in a paid situation.

The truth is it takes a long time to really learn any NLE and all its ins and outs, fretboard shortcuts etc to the point where you're just being creative and not thinking about the software and able to work effectively with a client breathing over your shoulder.
