I do a beekeeping for beginners series each year. You are welcome to check my website and look under Beekeeping for Beginners. There's a general class syllabus and also lecture notes from the first two classes.
Regarding the issue of polite vs pushy people. I limit the outdoor hive visit labs to 10 people. Its a small enough group to make reasonably certain that things are visible to everyone.
I'm not especially fond of the one day short courses. I think its way too much information to try to fit into one session. In fact its really too much to fit into the series I do. Many of the folks who complete the series stay in touch and have ongoing questions.
I've considered trying to put together an advanced series. Maybe next year.
