Online Study Environments
I'm very fond of the ProGen study groups which follow a curriculum based on the book edited by Elizabeth Shown Mills. ed., Professional Genealogy: A Manual for Researchers, Writers, Editors, Lecturers and Librarians (Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., 2001). http://books.google.com/books?id=8-w8gdbhSsIC&lpg=PR1&dq=professional%20genealogy&pg=PA486#v=onepage&q=professional%20genealogy&f=false . (DIsclosure: I had the privilege to mentor ProGen7.) For information on joining a group, check out www.progenstudy.org .
