Maybe, but

enrolling in programming courses because "you want to become a programmer" really isn't a particularly good filter. No more than enrolling in a music class will make you a millionaire rock musician (or avoiding them for rap); no more than enrolling in a gym class will make one an Olympic contender.

Want to and able to, having no true cause-and-effect relationship (in either direction) is where the problem lies. Where I work, one of the employees went to classes to become a makeup artist. On a good day she looks like a geisha who applied her makeup with boxing gloves.
