Much better than my previous class with another company. The Lion instructor made sense, kept me awake and made me laugh!
Enterprise Safety Manager
I will never go anywhere, but to Lion Technology.
Lion is my preferred trainer for hazmat and DOT.
I had a positive experience utilizing this educational program. It was very informative, convenient, and rewarding from a career perspective.
Lion courses are the standard to which all other workshops should strive for!
Registered Environmental Health Specialist
This course went above my expectations from the moment I walked in the door. The instructor led us through two days packed with useful compliance information.
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.

The price was reasonable, the time to complete the course was manageable, and the flexibility the online training allowed made it easy to complete.
