A Microsoft Access Class

At work, I have been deemed the person in my group who should learn Microsoft Access. I am allowed to take a class. Can anyone recommend a good Microsoft Access class in NYC?

I have no experience with Access or any databases whatsoever. I am an fairly advanced Excel user with some VBA knowledge.
The main reason we want me to know Access is that clients keep sending us giant datasets in Access and we are sad because we don't know how to deal with them and then we have to ask for them to be converted into a billion spreadsheets, and that is embarrassing. But it may be useful to actually work with large datasets IN Access, hence, we have decided someone should have it on her computer and should learn it, and that someone is me. I give this background because I'm not certain of the level of competence I need to achieve in said class.
I'd prefer an in-person class to an online tutorial (but I can be talked out of this), because I am the type who is likely to get bored and skim through an online tutorial and thus not really learn enough, but who would not skip a class.
