It's going to be up to the individual as to the type and level of training and skill needed.
The individual will decide what training to take (or not), but for most civilian defensive situations involving the use of a handgun in the out of doors, the actual needs are most likely very similar indeed.

They entail the ability to handle a completely unexpected, very violent, rapidly unfolding attack by one or more criminal actors, most probably within a distance of three to five yards.

That ability would be needed if and only only if all else--absence and avoidance, "situational awareness", etc., fail.

I'll say again that most "bad habits" that "can get you killed" have to do with what people do or do not do before there is any need to reach for a firearm.
