I've been considering taking a frame-building course, specifically, chromoly brazing. I have two options, UBI or a smaller (and slightly closer to home) course with Doug Fattic, anyone have any experience taking a frame-building course with either of the two? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Those are all great classes in every regard. You will learn a ton whichever one you pick.
If you don't have as much time, I offer a class that is only a week long, and it is lug brazing. However, my class does not go into as much depth as the courses you mentioned, because again only a week long.

THIS BLOG (http://www.seanchon.com:80/2009/11/handmade-bicycles-frame-building-from-the-eyes-of-a-beginner/) is by one of Tim Sanner's recent students describing the week long basic framebuilding class. I've just signed up to attend Tim's Jan 4-8 class.
