Newbie with questions

My husband and I are planning to take a Live Aboard Crusing Class sometime this summer. But we are concerned that just to take a class and not have any options to actually sail does not make sense.

So, once we have taken the class and have passed the certification, how hard is it to charter a boat from a charter company, or from The Moorings? How does that all work?
Can we take a class in one location, say St. Petersburg or Newport RI (which is close to home), and still charter a boat in the BVI?
Is it important to start out learning where you are going to charter first?
How much experience do charter companies expect you to have?

Please help me so we can decide the best options for us.

Thanks!!
