Beginner Faceting

Hi there,
I want to learn how to facet. I live in the Erie PA area. Have yet to join the mineral society that is local. I suppose that is my first step. Other than that, anyone have any advice? Do I need to take classes on identifying minerals? Where would I do that? I have looked on the GIA website. They have distance learning classes. Something I should pursue? Rocks and minerals have been a huge interest to me for a few years. Took a trip to Montana last summer with the hubby and have some great sapphires, garnets, and other unidentified rocks....want to do something with these.
