There is a group in Huntsville that is an excellant source of information and training. unfortuantely I'm unable to provide you with the URL address due to site restrictions but if you search the net using Madison Country Bee Keepers you should not have any trouble finding the site.
I live in Hazel Green and attended their training session last year. Was very pleased with training and have started off this year with my first two hives. Good luck!
