Have you tried reaching out to facilities in your area? There are several reasons I highly recommend that approach over turning to the internet: you never know when the person you interview can become a networking contact when it comes to finding that first job and you can verify the person truly has the credentials you're looking for. As someone who has done interviews for students in the past (in person), it is much easier for me to simply talk while they took notes. As someone who has been a student seeking the interview, doing so in person allowed for a lot of going off tangent and learning far than would have been possible without that immediate back and forth.
