I think that you would find this article by quietman7, one of Bleeping Computer's foremost computer security experts, to be helpful.
Bleeping Computer also provides malware removal training, but there is an expectation that candidates will contribute their newly gained expertise once they graduate, to assist others here with their malware issues, to "pay back" for the training that they have received at no cost. I am the most recent graduate from the program. I can tell you that it does require a lot of commitment and time to succeed, if you are accepted. The program is very comprehensive and the instructors are the best.
Have a great day.
