    LOL, I'm with you when it comes to picking color. I can tell what doesn't look right after someone else does the picking.
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    there are so many online color pickers that a class sounds redundant ...
    try colorpicker, ColorPic, Color Scheme Designer, just for starters!

    What I mainly do is: pick a print or main fabric and just pick fabrics to match colors in it. I would not spend the money for it. Just me.

    A lot of fabrics have colored dots woven into the selvage. These dots match colors that are in the fabric. You can use them to help pick out coordinating fabrics.

    Also, when you are trying to decide on fabrics, lay the bolts of fabric across a surface so that you can see some of each color then take your focus fabric and open it out so that it lays across all the other bolts. Step back at least a yard, if not more and squint. If there is anything that doesn't work, it will pop out like a sore thumb.
