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!
Best course instructor I've ever had. Funny, relatable, engaging; made it interesting and challenged us as the professionals we are.
Course instructor was better prepared and presented better than other trainers. Course manual and references were easier to use as well.

Lion's online training is more comprehensive, has better slides, and is a superior training experience than what I would get from other trainers.
District Environmental Manager
Excellent job. Made what is very dry material interesting. Thoroughly explained all topics in easy-to-understand terms.
I can't say enough how pleased I was with this course! Everything finally makes sense.
I was recently offered an opportunity to take my training through another company, but I politely declined. I only attend Lion Technology workshops.

I have attended other training providers, but Lion is best. Lion is king of the hazmat jungle!!!
