chris, i can't help you w/your query and hopefully
someone else here can, but in the meantime, perhaps
the following thread may give you some insight:
some personal advice, i went the 'cheap' route
as well (b/c i'm not well off) and i would
recommend that you COMPARE the value of instruction
versus just judging a course by its price.
after you've talked to other divers and found
a few shops to compare, see what they offer for
money; this equals value:
the more time they spend w/you in class, in pool,
and in the open ocean, THE BETTER so that you can
master your skills unequivocally.
the less time they spend w/you in class AND/OR
in pool AND/OR in the open ocean, the worse off
you will be.
best wishes, and tell us how you end up doing!!
