I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
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!

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.
I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
Attending Lion Technology classes should be mandatory for every facility that ships or stores hazmat.
