Very well structured, comprehensive, and comparable to live training seminars I've participated in previously. I will recommend the online course to other colleagues with training requirement needs.
The instructor was very engaging and helped less experienced people understand the concepts.
I had a positive experience utilizing this educational program. It was very informative, convenient, and rewarding from a career perspective.
I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.
