well alot of school you kinda just enter and just pick up as you go along.. the instructors cover the basics one day and more advanced skills another.. so give it some time.. if your still lost and confused.. ask the instructor to go over some stuff with you.. or ask one of the more advanced students if they can work with you.. in a good school this is encouraged and most people will be willing to help.
