Its mostly about sticking a back on a camera(s) so that I can get instant gratification - one day, I will get around to processing all that film in my fridge. I shoot mainly landscapes so high ISOs may not be of major importance however longer shutter speeds would be nice. Depending on the back, I'm hoping I may not have to go the Kapture Group route. Training? you mean you can get training on these things? I have been training myself so that may be one of my issues.
A good dealer has both the technical and real world experience to help you understand the abilities and limitations of your system, and how to get the most out of it. For instance I recently spent an afternoon covering long exposure with one of our customers who shoots scenes of private city life from outside of building threw their windows. We covered all the things you might find buried in the forums (e.g. longest spec'd exposure only applies at base ISO, ambient temperature matters a lot, taking a break between several long exposures will allow heat to dissipate) as well as spending significant time in Photoshop and Capture One showing her what processing settings and workflow chain I've found are helpful as you push the limits of the long exposure.
We've recently opened a Remote Demo Center [video, audio, screen sharing, and raw file sharing] wherein we can assist our customers regardless of where they are.
You absolutely do not have to go it on your own.
That said this forum is also an excellent place to seek advice. I try very hard to provide honest, comprehensive answers to our customers, but I am only one point of view and getting a diversity of views is always a good idea. Again, if you want good advice from the forum though you should provide the forum as much detail about what you're looking for and what your priorities are.
