I chose Lion's online webinar because it is simple, effective, and easily accessible.
Environmental Health & Safety Technician
The instructor did an excellent job presenting a very dry subject; keeping everyone interested and making it enjoyable.
Hazardous Waste Professional
If I need thorough training or updating, I always use Lion. Lion is always the best in both instruction and materials.
Amazing instructor; real-life examples. Lion training gets better every year!
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
My experience with Lion classes has always been good. Lion Technology always covers the EPA requirements I must follow.
Having the tutorial buttons for additional information was extremely beneficial.
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.
Convenient; I can train when I want, where I want.
Hazmat Shipping Professional
This was the 1st instructor that has made the topic actually enjoyable and easy to follow and understand. Far better than the "other" training providers our company has attended!
