This training broke down the regulations in an easy-to-understand manner and made them less overwhelming. I now feel I have the knowledge to make more informed decisions.
The workshop covered a lot of information without being too overwhelming. Lion is much better, more comprehensive than other training providers.

I used the IT support number available and my issue was resolved within a few minutes. I don't see anything that could have made it better.
My experience with Lion training, both online and in the classroom, is that they are far better organized and provide a better sequential explanation of the material.
