also the o'reilly school of technology has 4 levels of perl courses 
written by peter scott. what is good about their setup is you code up 
answers to problems on their sandbox and get them reviewed by a trainer 
before you can pass. so you go at your own pace but with help. and you 
can signup at anytime and not need to wait for a course nearby.
