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.
Senior Director of EH&S
The instructor had knowledge of regulations and understanding of real-world situations. The presentation style was engaging and fostered a positive atmosphere for information sharing.
Safety & Environmental Compliance Officer
This is a very informative training compared to others. It covers everything I expect to learn and even a lot of new things.
Waste Management Professional
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 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.
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.
This is the best RCRA training I've experienced! I will be visiting Lion training again.

As always, Lion never disappoints
Best instructor ever! I was going to take my DOT training w/a different provider, but based on this presentation, I will also be doing my DOT training w/Lion!
Hazardous Waste Professional
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.
