Since you ask about a course, I'm guessing that you'd be willing to spend 
some money.  I'm not aware of anything like it, but if you know some other 
people who might attend such a course, I'd try asking the people listed in 
<http://www.debian.org/consultants/> if somebody (close to your location) 
would organize such a course.

What you get gratis is, of course, all the information contained on the 
Debian web page etc., but you know this already. To know the nuts and bolts 
of Debian, <http://www.debian.org/devel/> is a good starting point - but 
you probably should know quite a lot about Unix and Linux in general before 
you can profit much from this highly Debian-specific information.

For general Linux information, try the top results of this google search: 
<http://www.google.com/search?q=linux%20newbies> and perhaps you can find a 
page matching your level of knowledge. Just remember when you got your 
first computer and had to learn everything: this will be the same, you'll 
spend lots of time learning things before you feel at home in the system.
