MySQL training classes

Hi everybody,

I'm looking to see if anybody is willing to weigh in on the quality of various MySQL training classes. I'm interested in a number of DBA-related items, particularly performance tuning. The book "High Performance MySQL" is excellent, but the reason I'm attracted by full-day training sessions is that, when they're good, they can provide the psychological imperative YOU WILL UNDERSTAND THIS NOW that a self-imposed training session consisting of lone dude sitting with a book and a computer doesn't.

But, of course, it only makes sense to invest the time and money if the courses are of reasonably good quality.

I'm mainly looking at the offical MySQL/Sun/Oracle/Unicorp training, because that's what's most readily available. Percona (the firm founded by the authors of the aforementioned book) has some public training sessions, but there aren't scheduled right now.
