We're sitting here with several books for ciphers, downloaded a program to help figure out how they work but there are about 200 different ciphers that can be used and trying to wrap my head around them is a bit of a challenge.

The research ones I can normally figure out, however some of these other ones are a bit more of a challenge (yes they should be like that) - any chance some time in the near future there may be a puzzle teaching event - I'd be willing to host and organize if teachers could come and help us poor folks that are new to this..or does anyone know of a course that is offered?

having playfair/rot13/ceaser/Digraph/pigpen/modular transposition and several others

Along with what I think are some what of a ruse and you can't solve the puzzle on the internet, you've got to go to the location and read the puzzle and it wll solve itself when you get there and 'follow the story"

Once you do a few then some come easier but there are often new twists just to keep on one their toes. If you are really stuck and haven't found clues in the cache name or somewhere on the cache page then email the owner for a clue to help you get started. I haven't heard of any formal courses but a lot of informal education goes on at events.

If you find yourself stuck with a puzzle, it is always best to contact the cache owner. You'll find that the cache owner will be more than willing to help you out with a hint or two.
