There are plenty of books on the subject, even free pdf files of whole books if you were looking for a cheap alternative to expensive courses. In addition to that there are a lot of courses online on YouTube. I'm sorry if I didn't answer your question but the amount of material for free online is your best bet in my humble opinion.

Full disclosure: I am not a shill and do not get a penny for sharing my 2cents. Do not spend a dime on options courses. Hands down the best options education on Earth is through TastyTrade/Dough, TastyWorks(brokerage) ; Tom Sosnoff and his team are the ivy league of options trading tools, education and success. Best of all it's FREE!!! Doesn't hurt that his resumé also includes creating the gold standard in an options platform which TD Ameritrade was smart enough to buy out, as opposed to building their own from scratch. Good luck on your journey options are tough at first but it's worth the ride if you stick it out.

DeCarley wrote a good book on futures options trading. Maybe a great start?

A good place to get video courses is Udemy. They periodically have sales where they reduce prices to 5% of the full cost. So from $200 to $10. They have quite a few courses there on options. Have a look at the reviews before you buy and you can also get a refund within 30 days if you don't like a course.

I can concur on Udemy as far as education on various subjects like finance, Excel, programming. I've never taken a course on trading or options from there so I couldn't comment as far as that aspect is concerned. But they are great for learning various things if your actually able to buckle down and go through each section/slide.

Options Volatility and Pricing by Sheldon Natenberg and Options as a Strategic Investment by Lawrence McMillan are the go to books. TastyTrade has tons of free videos on their site. Options Alpha also has great easy to follow videos as well.

If you are looking for a single strategy I would hands down recommend one from a group of my mentors: John Richardson. He is methodical, exacting, accurate, honest, even-keeled and solid as a rock. Pick up the phone and call him. You will see what I am talking about quickly.

What he teaches is going to be hard to learn and take you years. But it works. It's simple but not easy. Straightforward.

If you are looking to understand the complete universe of option trading yes I would highly recommend Tom's Tastytrade. Even in small doses you can't go wrong.

Find a group to mentor you. Build a network for yourself. Going it alone is a newbie illusion and ends very badly.

Just understand what you are getting into. Trading in general, as a vocation, is going to take time and money to become proficient.

The only way I see trading working out for someone is if they are bitten by the trading bug. I mean, you have got to love this stuff because the personal growth curve you will be exposing yourself to is steep. With this love you will be able to dedicate time consistently to trading. And by trading I mean the complete spectrum of what it entails not just executing orders.

I wish you only the very best!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ron
