Training for cycling instructor--where are the classes and seminars?

I was poking around the League of American Cyclist website www.bikeleague.org trying to find info on becoming an instructor.  But I had NO luck:  links to sign up for email lists are dead, I cannot find a single cycling class (now called Smart Cycling, apparently, though when I took it years ago it was Traffic Safety 101) even listed on the calendar, nor any seminars for training of trainers.  Is some other organization handling cycling classes?  The "Connect Locally" search does reveal all the instructors and organizations for the searched area (scroll down) but I don't want to bother someone if the info is available on the web.

Thanks,
Elizabeth Gray

You might see this link:  http://www.bikeleague.org/content/seminar-schedule  and this link:  https://www.bikeleague.org/content/become-instructor 
For similar, see:  https://register.cyclingsavvy.org/findaclass

Also, this might help: https://bikeaustin.org/bike-education-request/

Thanks, you pointed me to a page on the LAB site I hadn't found through my own navigation.  And now I'm aware of the Cycling Savvy and Center for Cycling Education class curricula.  But the bottom line is, I see no basic classes from any provider currently scheduled in Austin.  That's a change from years past when there seemed to be classes regularly scheduled several times a year.  Maybe the volunteers are are tired out, or maybe there's no demand now for cycling classes, dunno.  Anyway, I appreciate the pointers.

The request link at bike Austin may still help.

I have been talking to Katie Deolloz, the head of Bike Austin.   They will be offering an LCI course soon, so keep an eye on Bike Austin.  She says the first one will be for women.  I wanted to join it and even offered to wear a dress and heals, but she said no and that another course would be offered soon after and to keep looking out for it on their website.
