The training was impressive. I am not a fan of online training but this was put together very well. I would recommend Lion to others.
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.
Having the tutorial buttons for additional information was extremely beneficial.
Amazing instructor; real-life examples. Lion training gets better every year!
