Best instructor ever! I was going to take my DOT training w/a different provider, but based on this presentation, I will also be doing my DOT training w/Lion!
Hazardous Waste Professional
My experience with Lion classes has always been good. Lion Technology always covers the EPA requirements I must follow.
I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
Attending Lion Technology classes should be mandatory for every facility that ships or stores hazmat.
The instructor was excellent. They knew all of the material without having to read from a notepad or computer.
The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.
The instructor kept the class engaged and made learning fun. There was a lot of information to cover but time flew by. I will definitely use Lion in the future!

The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
The course is well thought out and organized in a way that leads to a clearer understanding of the total training.
