Weschler's book is pretty well considered the bible of FAM, so that's a terrific place to start. She explains the process, provides sample charts and illustrations...it really is a complete resource. Be aware though that the book itself is targeted more toward those using FAM to TTC, rather than for preventing pregnancy. There is information about using it for prevention, but not as much as there is about trying to conceive. Don't let yourself get frustrated with it, the info is there.
In terms of the classes, I'd start by doing some searches for "fertility awareness method classes" with your local area specified. If you have any women's health centers/clinics or Planned Parenthood locations nearby, they might also be able to point you toward course. Be careful about any class you find...you want to check to see that what they are teaching is actually fertility awareness (not withdrawal or rhythm, etc.).
