    There are classes at your local community college or local university - you would have to see what they charge.  H&R block also provides classes but most are for continuing eduation.

    Have you checked your local library for books and materials related to preparing taxes or, my best suggestion, contact one of those franchise tax perparers that pop up all over during tax time and try to get hired on - they mostly just walk through a software program that asks simple questions and you fill in the desired amounts / information.  This way you can learn the industry and make a little money in the mean time.
