I’ve read many opinions on Gurus or Courses that are not legitimate or worthwhile.

What Courses, Seminars, “Gurus”, would you recommend? I love BP as a resource but the amount of information is overwhelming. I’m looking for a basic course to get started. I learn faster in person than via video or reading.

I am very aware that REI takes a lot of work and it is not an avenue to get rich quick. I'm not looking for the easy route. I'm just wanting to learn the basics quickly in a more hands on approach.

I’d appreciate your suggestions. Thanks!
