Extra classes DO NOT give sentence reductions unless they are written into State law. County jail time IS definitely considered "time served" and is credited as time on any sentence imposed. The calculations absolutely take all time in custody against any term, even if the offender is only kept for an hour, it counts as one day. The county jail personnel is correct, that this adjustment is up to the state prison staff to apply time from county to the state sentencing calculations. We would recommend calling the Administration offices of the state correctional system to get your answers - there is a chance that it is already figured into the release date.
