Anyone care to recommend a Coffee Roasting Course or School?  (And provide reasons.)

I've been roasting since February and getting very good reviews. 
Been blending for espresso but mostly roasting Single beans for french press.  I KNOW there's more to know but I want to focus my education and not spend too much time/money on a misguided learning trajectory. 
What do you recommend?
Goals:
1) to keep my customers happy,
2) to be able to get the best of any bean,
3) to enhance my blending abilities,
4) to find a mentor...
Thanks!

How long have you been roasting, and on what equipment?
Since February. Diedrich IR3kg.
About 30 batches per week.
Join the guild brother.
Th American Barista & Coffee School is now offering roasting classes and custom classes.
I have heard about Water Street, Matt. COngrats. I saw a bag of the El Toro at the WCBCs last week but I think it went home with the Fernwood Boys! Feel free to send me a pound or two.
From what I have read about the ABCs Roasting Workshop is that it would be be similar to the 2 day seminar I attended at Diedrich when I purchased my roaster (similar except for the inclusion of fluid-bed info).
As a past student of yours I think ABC's roasting course looks like an excellent addition to ABC's curriculum.
