Are Hazmat Certifications Worth It?Like professionals in many industries, dangerous goods pros can earn industry-specific certifications that demonstrate their expertise and commitment to hazardous materials safety.

Amazing instructor; real-life examples. Lion training gets better every year!
We have a very busy work schedule and using Lion enables us to take the course at our own time. It makes it easy for me to schedule my employees' training.

Lion is my preferred trainer for hazmat and DOT.
Lion's training was by far the best online RCRA training I've ever taken. It was challenging and the layout was great!

The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
I have attended other training providers, but Lion is best. Lion is king of the hazmat jungle!!!
