An excellent place to learn all about investing and evaluating commercial real estate is the Certified Commercial Investment Members - CCIM - educatuional courses. There are chapters all over the United States.
Although the classes generally geared towards licensed real estate professional, it is open to unlicensed investors also. And what a great way to meet the very people that can help you find deals!

I agree with the person below regarding CCIM, as their courses give you a solid understanding of how real estate works as a financial investment. If you do not have a degree, take some courses at the community college regarding accounting and economics. UNDERSTANDING FINANCE IS KEY.
Also try ULI, they have a wide variety of courses, they are geared more to developers. You can learn alot about the building process and related issues. They also regularly host events where you can share ideas and experiences with other members. The attendees are usually very serious about their profession and have alot of wisdom to share.
