I'm pretty new to lighwave and I need some training. Now!
Are there any good classes or workshops in Ohio or surrounding states? Or anywhere else in the US?

Are you wanting one-on-one training? If so, then you'll want to spend a few days with Dan Ablan. He's outside of Chicago.

If you don't necessarily need one on one ... then get his Signature series on Lightwave 11 and "Up to Speed" on Lightwave 11.5

If it were me, I'd probably spend a couple months on his DVD training, then go to his one-on-one training. That way, you'll get your money's worth.

Liberty3d.com provides both focused and broadly scoped video content that will save you a lot of stumbling in the dark. Some recommendations:

Secrets of Subdivision (http://www.liberty3d.com/2013/03/secrets-of-subd-modeling-volume-1/) - this covers various problems and solutions to them when it comes to using modeler and makes for a very handy go-to resource. It comes in 2 parts; if you wait for a sale to roll out you can get both of them for about $30

Tom Roth's Principles of 3D character animation (http://www.liberty3d.com/2014/02/liberty3d-welcomes-legendary-character-animator-tom-roth/) - Also about $30, I cannot recommend it highly enough for people who need a foothold in animating in terms of the concepts behind it. Nothing available even compares to the experience this guy brings to the table.

There's a lot of other great stuff on Liberty3d for learning resources; we have both beginner and advanced level content so give it a look!

Just out of curiosity, how long time does it takes before one get the download links?

I order the lightwave 11 and 11.5 training videos 7-8 hours ago and I have still not received any download links.

Oh I received the mail with the link in it an hour ago :)
