Good call there KSGUNNER. It always feels better training your own dog, rather than just seeing the results. You'll appreciate it so much more if you do it yourself.
I'd start by talking to your trainer. He knows where the dog is, and what method he has started with. Stick with whatever he is using if it is working.
If I'd disagree with anything harvey said, it would be that it takes 1/2 hour each day. You don't even need that. 15 minutes is plenty. It may take a little longer in the long run, but I think shorter lessons work better.
Checkout Evan Graham's book. It's called Smartfetch. I thought it was great. But like I said, talk to your trainer. It sounds like you have spent alot of money with him, so he shouldn't have a problem giving you some guidelines.
Ask specific questions on here along the way. I know enough on the topic to get you through it, and I know many others do as well. In closing I would give the advice to demand perfection during FF, because this is the ground work for all retrieving and you are taking the time to do it right, so you might as well get the benefits.
