I've been shooting semi-regularly for about 12 or so years but have only participated in formal, hands-on training for maybe the past few years, I'd say a total six or eight courses that average 4 to 6 hours each.

It was plain to see that prior to training I was mostly just punching holes in paper, burning up ammo and ingraining bad habits.

The biggest thing I picked up is the importance of practice between training sessions, especially the first week or two. Next is the value of a consistent dry fire plan and having specific goals every time I go out to practice.

I have friends who have accompanied me to formal training sessions, proclaimed how excellent and valuable it was, how much they learned in just a few hours, then six weeks later can't remember any of it because they haven't shot a round in six weeks.
