Home Depot - Free Workshops

Did you know home depot offers free clinics that provide information on everything from installing counter tops to using a miter saw? Now frankly, I know how to paint, but I don't know how to re tile a bathroom per SE, so I am going to be keeping my eyes open for relevant clinics I can take for free at the home depot near me.

Clinics are offered as walk in classes so no registration is necessary.

Here is an example of some of their workshops.
