UBI Framebuilding Course Post-Partum Issues

I'm interested in taking UBI's beginner framebuilding class - enough to have made the trip to meet them and inspect their facilities. All looks good but there is one sticking point: what do I do with these new skills after the class ends? (Sure, you come away from the class with your own frameset (sans fork) but for the amount of the $3000 tuition, I can have a custom builder build a better frame than I can build myself.)

I posed this question to the nice chap from UBI, who suggested going into business as a framebuilder. Sorry, that's not going to happen. I then asked if I could use their framebuilding tools and facilities after the class ends, but he nixed that idea, mumbling something about their insurance concerns.

I'm not willing to spend more than a couple of hundred dollars on tools (I don't have any framebuilding tools),

Thoughts or advice?
