Houston Pistol Training Recommendations (Course/Instructor)

Apart from experience as a teenager shooting rifles and pistols, I'm coming into firearm ownership as a blank slate. As I mentioned in "The Waiting Room" part of the board, I recently took my CHL class and I'm awaiting processing of my CHL. I have gone out to the range a few times with my pistol and feel pretty comfortable shooting it, but I know I really need to get some additional training to better understand my deficiencies and better prepare for carrying my pistol regularly.

That said, I have a few questions:

NRA Training or not? - I'm an NRA member and I see a wide variety of training available in the Houston area. Some of these are NRA courses, such as NRA Basic Pistol Shooting. What is the benefit of taking NRA courses vs. non-NRA courses? What courses would y'all recommend in general for someone wanting to become more proficient at using their pistol for concealed carry and home defense (whether NRA sanctioned or not)?

Instructor Recommendations - What Houston area instructors do y'all recommend for defensive pistol training?

Thanks in advance for any guidance y'all can provide.
