Hi Ellis-

There are many courses now in Vermont, New Hampshire, New York state, NYC, and Massachusetts-

I guess it depends on what you are looking for- a certain time of year to fit your schedule, a different format (such as a weekend format, residential, multi-part, etc.), and focus, such as practice, design, social activism, farm scale, home scale, etc.

Fortunately- you have many options! 

And fortunately, most of the people teaching courses around here do it very well- but do your research!

The differences may be more in style of teaching, etc.  Although there's actually only a few very 'seasoned' designers/ teachers.

Let us now where your interests are, and we'll be happy to provide some more feedback.

As far as Ben's- great site, totally worth seeing.
