If you are looking for general information about MI the best source is either by reading or the website of the international MINT organization, a non-profit network of trainers .
If you are looking for a trainer in MI you have a tougher challenge. Miller and I decided never to try to control the professional behaviour of others, let alone MI itself. Our logic was this: if something is worthwhile, it will last, if not, so be it. While this has enabled diverse application it has a downside: there is no quality control of either training or practice. Membership of MINT does not guarantee the quality of a trainer.
MINT is run by volunteers, and they have produced an excellent guide here: http://www.motivationalinterviewing.org/training-expectations

MINT is an international organisation of trainers in motivational interviewing. The trainers come from diverse backgrounds and apply MI in a variety of settings. Their central interest is to improve the quality and effectiveness of counselling and consultations with clients about behaviour change concepts. Started in 1997 by a small group of trainers trained by William R. Miller and Stephen Rollnick, the organisation has since grown to represent 33 countries and more than 20 different languages.
