    What kind of course are you looking for? TDI is always a good option

    Check out Handgun I-III in the link I provided.

    Handgun 1-3 is the best program in the area for what you are looking for. Bar none. But, you pay for it.

    Other options:

    Check the Buckeye Firearms Association website, sometimes they host events put on by the travelling trainers, which are more advanced. A fair number of them are held in Southern Ohio.

    My group runs an "intermediate pistol" class a few times a year, although I think the next one is full. It is a good refresher on more advanced skills than what a CHL class offers, however, TDI is more in depth, with more trigger time. I will be perfectly honest about that, they are a top tier training group that people travel to, we cater to a more local crowd. Not saying we suck at what we do, but honestly, they are on a different level.

    Find an IDPA club in your area, and attend their shoots. I know there is some debate on "shooting sports vs real training" but, it will give you practice on drawing from concealment, and engaging targets while adding movement and some stress, and rounds are better spent there than on a static range IMHO. If you are close to the Cincinnati area, there are a few other options, like Friday night steel competitions.
