On June 29th there is a SQL Saturday for South Florida, in a town called Davie. Register, select talks that will help you with your studies, and network ther. You'll find lots of people who'll be willing to give you lots of free advice - MVPs who are totally approachable and from whom you'll get great tips. (no, I'm not going - I live in Philly!).

Enjoy it and learn!

Mike's suggestion sounds great.

Also, I'd suggest reading good books: you'll get much better preparation for any classes and follow-on discussions from that than from any introduction to intermediate classes.

For admin and internals, look for books by Kalen Delaney.

For T-SQL, by Itzik Ben-Gan.

Naturally you may be able to find some good material from them on the web as well.

Another pointer: Pragmatic Works are some of the best people for SSIS/SSAS/SSRS, and they live in Florida. They also do free (as in $nada!!) training spots - look for stuff on their web site.

Overall, get to as many courses as you can, read and absorb whatever's out there to be had, and never be afraid to ask for help!

PS Another good source of info:  SSWUG.org.
