I will never go anywhere, but to Lion Technology.
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.
The exercises in the DOT hazardous materials management course are especially helpful in evaluating your understanding of course information.

I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
Having the tutorial buttons for additional information was extremely beneficial.
As always, Lion never disappoints
If I need thorough training or updating, I always use Lion. Lion is always the best in both instruction and materials.
The instructor was very very informative, helpful, understandable and pleasant. This course answered many questions I had, being new to this industry.
I love that the instructor emphasized the thought process behind the regs.
