Not sure how long ago you tried to do this, but there are a number of colleges (Bachelors and post-grad) that offer solid Infosec programs now (disclaimer, there are just as many that offer crappy Infosec programs).
In-depth training and certification is available for most major/widely-deployed Infosec products, such as Snort (http://www.sourcefire.com/services/education).
Also, there are professional training organizations (e.g. SANS) that offer excellent [mostly] vendor-neutral Infosec training.
Infosec as an actual field is fairly young, so it's not surprising that there isn't an Infosec program at every college in the country, but there are numerous high-quality training options available.
