|I will second finding a trainer that does foundation skills - I want my dog to have a very good understanding of my body cues before they ever touch equipment.
Not all trainers are at facilities though...sometimes you will find a single person that uses an arena of sorts that they rent, or an area on their property cordoned off with equipment. The CleanRun list is a good start...but is lacking as I know plenty of good local trainers who are not listed.
I wouldn't worry too much about finding a venue to compete in just yet. I would highly suggest CPE, NADAC, or ASCA for beginners though. Also, try finding some local trials (agilityevents.net) and see if people have any local recommendations for you
