Paying for guidance is partly why startups exchange equity for funding. There is no replacement for experts who know more than you and know how better to execute to guide your startup throughout its stages.
As for these programs, they sound to me like diploma mills (University of Phoenix). You might end up with a certificate of participation and some advice, but it doesn't break beyond a superficial level.
