Much better than my previous class with another company. The Lion instructor made sense, kept me awake and made me laugh!
Enterprise Safety Manager
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!
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!
Process & Resource Administrator
One of the best trainings I have ever received!
The instructor was very patient and engaging - willing to answer and help explain subject matter.
Material Control Superintendent
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
The instructor was very dedicated to providing a quality experience. She did her best to make sure students were really comprehending the information.
Inventory Control Specialist
If I need thorough training or updating, I always use Lion. Lion is always the best in both instruction and materials.
I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
Excellent. I learned more in two days with Lion than at a 5-day program I took with another provider.
