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

Our instructor was very dynamic and kept everyone's interest. Hazmat shipping can be a dry, complicated topic but I was engaged the entire time.

Excellent. I learned more in two days with Lion than at a 5-day program I took with another provider.

The instructor does a great job at presenting material in an approachable way. I have been able to save my company about $30,000 in the last year with what I have learned from Lion!

The instructor was very patient and engaging - willing to answer and help explain subject matter.
