Basic Diesel Maintenance Classes: Where?

I have looked but not found any diesel maintenance classes/seminars for general and basic care and feeding of small diesel motors. I'm not looking for a degree in the subject or a career as a diesel mechanic. I just want to feel more comfortable working on my iron Genny when I get a boat.

I don't currently own a boat or a diesel, that I can call my own and to mess around with.

I'm toying with the idea of buying a small old beater motor just to bring it around and learn from the process. Does that make sense or am I liable to throw good money after bad.

I would prefer to mess with someone else's motor and under some kind of supervision.

Any suggestions:
