Not hardcore stuff, but for a casual shooting events and perhaps trying some different guns, she should look up "women on target". Some club near you might be offering it sometime.
They aren't always handgun oriented, but they are when my wife holds the event at our club. Usually a bunch of NRA instructors volunteer and bring their guns for the women to try, offering instruction to the extent wanted/needed.
From there, she might ask instructors about what they'd suggest for more advanced lessons. For example, my wife is certified to teach self defense outside the home. That is a good start for someone who already is confident with a handgun (if not, then perhaps something like the basic pistol course, or private lessons).
From this type of stuff, one would be better prepared for more expensive and more intense stuff from advanced trainers offering advanced stuff that is typically well beyond NRA courses.
Getting into IDPA at the local club is also a way to get better at handgun shooting skills. Some of the people doing that will have good suggestions for trainers, too.
The way I see it, there are a series of steps that can be taken for shooters who are getting better or becoming more aware or serious as they seek to learn more.
Also some good books out there to read up on, that may help in addition to the efforts to find good training.
I joined the NRA, have you yet?
