My experience with Lion classes has always been good. Lion Technology always covers the EPA requirements I must follow.
I can take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
The instructor had knowledge of regulations and understanding of real-world situations. The presentation style was engaging and fostered a positive atmosphere for information sharing.

Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.
Chemical Laboratory Manager
Excellent course. Very interactive. Explanations are great whether you get the questions wrong or right.
Environmental, Health & Safety Regional Manager
Well designed and thorough program. Excellent summary of requirements with references. Inclusion of regulations in hard copy form, as well as full electronic with state pertinent regulations included is a great bonus!
This is a very informative training compared to others. It covers everything I expect to learn and even a lot of new things.

The course was very informative and presented in a way that was easily understood and remembered. I would recommend this course.

Very well structured, comprehensive, and comparable to live training seminars I've participated in previously. I will recommend the online course to other colleagues with training requirement needs.
Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
