Lion's information is very thorough and accurate. Presenter was very good.
Very well structured, comprehensive, and comparable to live training seminars I've participated in previously. I will recommend the online course to other colleagues with training requirement needs.
I was able to present my scenario to the instructor and worked thru the regulations together. In the past, I attended another training firm's classes. Now, I have no intention of leaving Lion!
Senior Environmental Engineer
Having the tutorial buttons for additional information was extremely beneficial.
I was recently offered an opportunity to take my training through another company, but I politely declined. I only attend Lion Technology workshops.
Material Production/Logistics Manager
The instructor was energetic and made learning fun compared to dry instructors from other training providers.
International Trade Compliance Manager
Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.
Chemical Laboratory Manager
Best course instructor I've ever had. Funny, relatable, engaging; made it interesting and challenged us as the professionals we are.
I have attended other training providers, but Lion is best. Lion is king of the hazmat jungle!!!
Hazardous Waste Technician
The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.
