I have been an instructor for five years, and go to some kind of continuing education course each year. My rule of thumb when taking a continuing education course to call the company I am looking at taking a course from and let them know my intentions. While some instructors feel threatened by another instructor coming to their class, I have found others to be very receptive. When doing this, expect to have the company you are going to take a course from to have you sign a non-compete agreement.
