I am looking for material that relates to teaching hand signals. The dog is steady, sits on whistle at a distance. I have seen the ball diamond drill, however, just curious as to what steps need to be taken to get to that point.

buy a copy of "Ten Minute Retriever" or "Smartworks". These two books will give you a basic foundation for handling.

10 Minute Retriever has very little handling information. So little in fact the title to the chapter is called "A Brief Introduction To Handling."

I expect Smartworks would be a better choice.

Also consider "Training Retrievers to Handle" by D. L. and Ann Walters.

Spencer’s book "Training Retrievers for Marshes and Meadows" Is an easy read for a novice. Some of the methods are subject debate but it is still worth considering.
