Even though I teach Security+ as a boot camp, I advise people interested in the training that pretty much all courses can be self-learned if interested in saving money. The biggest difference between courses and self-study is you are exchanging money for time, or vice versa.
Also, be aware you often get what you pay for. If you decide to go for a training course, make sure the teacher is competent, not the school. Also, you might check out community colleges in your area as well - a lot of the introductory courses are being included in college programs now.
