I can take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
Excellent. I learned more in two days with Lion than at a 5-day program I took with another provider.
The course was very informative and presented in a way that was easily understood and remembered. I would recommend this course.

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 training broke down the regulations in an easy-to-understand manner and made them less overwhelming. I now feel I have the knowledge to make more informed decisions.
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.
Course instructor was better prepared and presented better than other trainers. Course manual and references were easier to use as well.
