Start going to the club and watch, learn and listen.
To be a trainer you have to have experience. Training your own dogs to titles is a way to gain that experience.

I'm sure the TD and helpers in the club would love to mentor you as far as PP or helperwork. You could attend seminars and get certification thru those~affiliated with the USA or WDA. Clubs never have enough experienced helpers so those that have interest are usually embraced!!
To open your own training facility with personal protection or bitework involved is not something you can do in a short period of time. That is hands on for many years before you gain the reputation that others will want to come & train under you.
