Best course instructor I've ever had. Funny, relatable, engaging; made it interesting and challenged us as the professionals we are.
Lion's online training is more comprehensive, has better slides, and is a superior training experience than what I would get from other trainers.

Very good. I have always appreciated the way Lion Tech develops, presents and provides training and materials.

Hazardous Waste Professional
The instructor does a great job at presenting material in an approachable way. I have been able to save my company about $30,000 in the last year with what I have learned from Lion!
We have a very busy work schedule and using Lion enables us to take the course at our own time. It makes it easy for me to schedule my employees' training.

I can't say enough how pleased I was with this course! Everything finally makes sense.
No comparison. Lion has the best RCRA training ever!!
I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.
