Some good reading while you're waiting for the course would be David Hough's books, Proficient Motorcycling and More Proficient Motorcycling. If your library doesn't have them, they might order them if you request. If not, they are well worth buying. Every time I read them, I find some nugget of information I missed in prior readings.
