Dear TeX Group, 

Do you know of any community or 4-year colleges which explicitly offer 
a credit-course in TeX typesetting or any of its numerous variants (LaTeX, etc), 
specifically in the New Jersey / Philadelphia area? 

I have never learned TeX, in spite of trying at least 20 times since 1990. 
For all my published math papers (about 7 of them in 3 different peer-reviewed journals) 
I've used MS Word & Design Science's Mathtype, and exported to a PDF. 
My math & physics friends also have never learned TeX. I cannot speak for them whether 
they have tried it or not. 

Reason I ask: my math & physics friends & I might need to use TeX 
as part of a National Science Foundation grant I am preparing: not for the application process at all, 
but for archiving our results. 
But, in spite of thousands of online tutorials & YouTube videos, 
we can never organize & memorize the massive number of commands in markup languages 
like TeX. So, in order for us to do it, we would need to take formal college courses in TeX 
and each of us devote several thousand hours learning it.
