I will never go anywhere, but to Lion Technology.
I can take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
The instructor did an excellent job presenting a very dry subject; keeping everyone interested and making it enjoyable.

The instructor was great, explaining complex topics in terms that were easily understandable and answering questions clearly and thoroughly.
Lion is my preferred trainer for hazmat and DOT.
The training was impressive. I am not a fan of online training but this was put together very well. I would recommend Lion to others.
I was recently offered an opportunity to take my training through another company, but I politely declined. I only attend Lion Technology workshops.
