Well, that makes it a little harder! If you can get topographic maps for your area, its great fun to take compass in hand and do a bit of hiking/orienteering.
About those nav resources---
We have a cruisers' resource here in San Diego--a bookstore called Seabreeze (http://www.seabreezelimited.com/
) that is very good at helping folks find the books/charts/other resources they need. Of course, they sell them to you! But, the owner is a very knowledgeable woman. Send them an email detailing what you've tried and asking for a direction for appropriate DVD or CD/book based course. If its available, I'm pretty sure they'll have it or know about it.
