Best course instructor I've ever had. Funny, relatable, engaging; made it interesting and challenged us as the professionals we are.

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.

Lion's information is very thorough and accurate. Presenter was very good.

Melissa Little

I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.

Tom Bush, Jr.

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!

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.

We have a very busy work schedule and using Lion enables us to take the course at our own time. It makes it easy for me to schedule my employees' training.

The workshop covered a lot of information without being too overwhelming. Lion is much better, more comprehensive than other training providers.

I was recently offered an opportunity to take my training through another company, but I politely declined. I only attend Lion Technology workshops.
