The instructor was very dedicated to providing a quality experience. She did her best to make sure students were really comprehending the information.
Inventory Control Specialist
My experience with Lion training, both online and in the classroom, is that they are far better organized and provide a better sequential explanation of the material.
Manager, Dangerous Goods Transportation
The instructor's energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge of the subject make the class a great learning experience!
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.
Lion provided an excellent introduction to environmental regulations, making the transition to a new career as an EHS specialist less daunting of a task. Drinking from a fire hose when the flow of water is lessened, is much more enjoyable!
Lion's course was superior to others I have taken in the past. Very clear in the presentation and the examples helped to explain the content presented.

The instructor was probably the best I ever had! He made the class enjoyable, was humorous at times, and very knowledgeable.

Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.
Chemical Laboratory Manager
The instructor was very knowledgeable and provided pertinent information above and beyond the questions that were asked.
The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
