Hazmat Shipping Professional
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
I really enjoyed this training. Even after years on both sides of the comprehension coin, I find myself still learning! The quality of the delivery exceeded much of the training I have received in the past.
More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
The instructor made the class enjoyable. He presented in a very knowledgeable, personable manner. Best class I've ever attended. Will take one again.
Environmental Compliance Manager
If I need thorough training or updating, I always use Lion. Lion is always the best in both instruction and materials.
The instructor created a great learning environment.
CAD & Environmental Manager
Lion was very extensive. There was a lot of things that were covered that were actually pertaining to what I do and work with. Great Job. I will be coming back in three years!
Hazmat Shipping Professional
I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
The instructor was probably the best I ever had! He made the class enjoyable, was humorous at times, and very knowledgeable.
