How much are your pressing? I don't think they're particularly hard to learn and I don't think they're necessary or very useful until past the novice stage. They would be a good dynamic/limit strength day exercise as part of an overall pressing program that included overhead presses. The problem is they bypass the initial ROM of the press by using momentum from the dip. On the other hand they load the triceps a bit harder since you can use more weight and usually you can get it past the head with the dip.
