You could try seminars, classes, on-line learning etc. I my self joined SHRM and completed their 6 module learing system, I attented seminars sponsored by SHRM and HR.com and Business Management.
I also received traing from HR Training Ceneter on-line. I then went back to school in the evenings. I obtained my Master Certificate in Human Resources Management from Villanova University. I could do all if this online on my own time and still work during the day. There is a lot of less expensive trainging and information out there with sites like HR Specialist, SHRM, HR.com, etc.
Hope this helps.
