Getting started with DIY electrical

I am trying to improvement my DIY electrical skills. I have replaced a few plugs and switches as long as the wires are a obvious match to the new fixture. But to complete my project of updating all the plugs, switches, and added fan timer switches in the house. I need to improve my understanding of wiring. I signed up for a adult continuing education class for electrical but they canceled it due to low enrollment. Youtube videos are helpful but I have some wiring in my house that is not standard due the house being built in 1976. So, I need to learn to use a voltmeters to identify the correct wires in some fixtures. I have some handy co-workers but everyone is too busy to impose on them every time I run into a odd setup. I need recommendations for books, classes, etc... I am even pay someone for one on one instruction.
