I’ve never taken a class, but have spent a lot of time reading and watching Youtube videos. I feel reasonably comfortable and competent with my hand tool skills. Taking an in-person class early on in the process would have made the learning quicker but mostly, getting comfortable with handtools just involves a lot of practice. There is no one “right way” to do anything in woodworking. There is so much free information online and on Youtube, I wouldn’t pay for an online class, it won’t give you anything you can’t get for free.
