Excellent. I learned more in two days with Lion than at a 5-day program I took with another provider.
The instructor made the class enjoyable. He presented in a very knowledgeable, personable manner. Best class I've ever attended. Will take one again.

One of the best trainings I have ever received!
Lion is at the top of the industry in compliance training. Course content and structure are updated frequently to make annual re-training enjoyable. I like that Lion has experts that I can contact for 1 year after the training.
Much better than my previous class with another company. The Lion instructor made sense, kept me awake and made me laugh!
