Are there any guided educational resources for learning how to use REST API with Jira?

I would like to learn how to use REST API but I learn better when in a guided environment, like a classroom, rather than reading reference documentation. I've looked for online courses but I haven't found one that really starts from the ground up - the ones I've seen assume some level of knowledge up front.  If you know of any that would be most helpful.  Thank you.

Do you have the underlying skills with using REST APIs and are just looking for Jira specific training, or are you looking for complete "Teach me in a classroom how to use REST APIs in general" training?

A simple Google search for "training on how to use REST APIs" produced 61 MILLION results, including tons of online video tutorials as well as courses offered by training companies.

Once you know how to interact with one REST API, you pretty much know how to interact with all REST APIs, including all of Atlassian's products.

@David Bakkers thanks :) Yes, despite what it might seem like, I did actually check Google first, though after tweaking my search I did find one thing - what appears to be a course by Ravi Sagar.  @Ravi Sagar _Sparxsys_ creates some amazing content, and deserves so much more recognition for his work.

Anyway, while I appreciate the google it and find out approach, I had hoped someone might have known of a good course for using REST API with Jira - and for people who are not familiar with REST API.

Imagine for a moment you're really craving paigu fan from a Taiwanese restaurant and you ask for a restaurant recommendation, and someone tosses a box of menus at you - and sure, there's probably 30 Taiwanese restaurants with paigu fan on the menu, mixed in with menus from Shanghaiese, Szechuan, Mongolian, and Hong Kong style restaurants, along with 30 ads from Burger King, Taco Bell, and several other restaurants that just want your attention.   Well, the answer is in there somewhere, so... yay?

With that said, there didn't seem to be a lot of options for people who are just getting started, especially for Jira.  I'm hoping Ravi's class is different, but I suppose I was hoping someone might have known of a great starting point.
