My friend teaches Microsoft office training for a career skills type
company. He said initially they got a large amount of business when people
got laid off. Now the same people are still laid off so no one is coming in
for training.

I think the curve will be more subtle for PHP programmers and there are
external factors. For example, recent college graduates will probably engage
in a lot of self directed learning. I think overall PHP, and other
technology fields  will see a less pronounced bump in training, followed by
a sharp decline. Just smoother than the workforce in general.
