Hey Bob, welcome to the forum. The Orvis school will get you off to a great start and you'll be flinging flies in no time.
As Frank said, browse some of the stuff in past threads and the FAQ section, and feel free to ask questions as they come up.
Lot's of lingo to get your head around, and casting can be tricky to get the hang of especially if you're starting out on your own, but the Orvis school will take care of that and they'll coach you through the mechanics.
And you have a lot of fish to chase besides trout too- bass and panfish, and even saltwater if you get into that.
