Learning is a great thing, and I would never discourage taking a course. But...if you're into overkill I can think of some pretty sweet brewing equipment you could buy for 2k. Just a thought.
I'm only a few months into the brewing obsession myself, but I have learned a ton just by reading some of the books out there, brewing, and spending some time looking through the HBT archives. There is a lot to be gained just by reading, talking to those with more experience, brewing, and reading some more. And there's always youtube too, there are some awesome brewing videos that help put it all together. Like I said, I wouldn't want to discourage you from taking the class, but you might get more out of it if you exhaust some of the more basic resources first.
