The SketchUp website contains a Training page. On the sidebar they have links to video tutorials and self-paced tutorials, which are an excellent place to start.

It is really fun and easy, I am by no means an expert but do you know all the basics? I would suggest going through all of the tips that load when you start sketchup. Then to get more advanced maybe watch some youtube videos, I like making things in 3d using lots of triangles then smoothing the edges, this helps to make complex curves. Ask any specific questions, I think I know most of the basics.
