If I need thorough training or updating, I always use Lion. Lion is always the best in both instruction and materials.
Lion is at the top of the industry in compliance training. Course content and structure are updated frequently to make annual re-training enjoyable. I like that Lion has experts that I can contact for 1 year after the training.
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!

The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.
One of the best trainings I have ever received!
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!
