    you don't need any licenses or anything of that nature. You also don't need any permits to install them as a general rule. Each town could be different, but I've yet to run into one. The only reason you would need a permit is if the pond is more than 24" deep. then it can be considered a pool and you also need a fence around it technically.

    Coopers in Danbury, CT offers build-a-pond classes in the spring, They should be setting up the spring calendar soon.

    I recommend the Pond Builders Bible. it walks you through every step and helps with calculations. Definitely work the coin. other than that you can check out various threads in this forum.

    Coopers website doesn't have much on it, just basic contact and products they offer.
