Training is never a bad idea
In talking about concealed carry with people, it's surprising to find that often many of them haven't taken any formal training with their firearm. While that's not a major problem, since most defensive uses of guns are resolved in favor of the defender, quickly and at close range, it's still never a bad idea to increase your skills. Think about it. If you had to use your pistol to stop a thug who was attacking you, how confident would you be in both your own skills and your equipment? Taking professional training will help you with that. It'll show you what works and what doesn't by giving you an opportunity to test your equipment and your tactics. You'll have someone to coach you, who can see what you might be doing wrong and give you suggestions about what you could do to improve your abilities. Many of us assume that we're good enough with what we know, but what kind of attitude is that? You've taken on the burden of carrying a gun so that you can defend yourself and your loved ones. Is "maybe" being prepared good enough when it's the lives of those you love most in the world at stake? Most of you get training in the workplace so you can do your job more efficiently. Is there ANY job more important than defending your own life? Good training is a lifetime investment. When your life is on the line, you'll be glad you put in the time and effort.
