GOAL runs them in Northboro, MA. But that's a very long trip for you.
Have you checked with your state association, perhaps they offer them.
If you are close enough to NY, you might check their state association too.
GOAL is in MA, they aren't going to run courses in VT . My suggestion was to see if your VT assn does something similar.
Northboro isn't Western MA (except to some folks that never venture further than Rte. 128 ), so it may or may not be doable.
I suppose you could also contact the NRA's Education division and ask if anything is planned in VT or Albany area?
No, in-person course is for anyone. On-line courses have special "entry requirements".
