DOES A SELF IMPROVEMENT MODELLING COURSE LOOK GOOD ON ACTING RESUME?

I TOOK IT AT SUTHERLAND MODELS A FEW MONTHS BACK.

THE REASON ID THAT I THINK IVE BEEN 'SCAMMED' INTO TAKING THE COURSE BECAUSE I WANTED TO BE SIGNED WITH SUTHERLAND MODELS ANSD THEY TOLD ME TO TAKE THIS COURSE. IT WAS EXPENSIVE. I ENDED UP FORGETTING ABOUT THEM TO FIND A REAL REPUTABLE AGENT.

I DON'T WANT CASTING DIRECTORS OR WHOEVER WHO READS MY RESUME TO KNOW IVE BEEN SCAMMED OR SOMETHING

IM NOT EVEN A MODEL MATERIAL, 5 FOOT 1 AND THIN, 16 YEARS OLD.

OPINIONS??
