I think you have a couple of options. As stated above, training classes is one way. Another way is to choose to start with open source tools.
The software from the market leaders is rather expensive, so for you in a phase where you have to pay for the software yourself - I think a more open source way could be preferred.
There are some tools that are not open source, but still is freely available - such as the FTK Imager, and such tools are well worth to use frequently.
I would recommend to find a book or two here: syngress.com/digital-forensics/
E.g. the syngress.com/digital-f...rce-Tools/
Hope this was somewhat helpful - Occasionally I too feel like Alice - tumbling down the rabbit hole.
