Well I have received a response from Enzo Coccia's Pizza training. He says a "class" will start in January.
My situation is a little strange because I'm in eastern-europe working a project. I can't leave untill it's done, most likely Febuary or April. It could go all they way to Aug. (the longer the better, I am banking some good tax free money
). Whenever it ends I can take off for Italy. I would like to take a good 4-6 week pizza course and then possibly take your' advice and pay a small amount and work in a pizzeria for 2-4 weeks.
Thanks for all the advice so far. I am kinda in limbo waiting to see when my job ends so I can make firm plans.
PS. I have researched the Course offered in california by VPN. It doesn't look like a proffessional cooking course, more of a hobby type approach.
