Have a look at the presentations from previous SharkFest events. In particular see I've downloaded Wireshark ... Now What? by Betty Dubois.

Laura Chappell has free online training here and there is also Wireshark University and LoveMyTool which has videos from SharkFest amongst other things.

Finally the Wireshark site Get Help page has all of this and more.
