One of the problems here is that some students will invest the time in 
studying those subjects expecting to gain some benefit other than educational 
credit.  IE they will want to actually learn something useful rather than just 
get some marks.

If someone does such a course in year 12 next year then the course would have 
been designed this year if not earlier (they need to get the training written 
in advance).  So a year 12 student in 2014 would finish university no earlier 
than 2017 and look for work in 2018.  It doesn't seem that a product specific 
training course from 2013 would be that useful in 2018.  It would be about as 
useful as "MS Windows Vista" specific knowledge is right now.
