One of the best trainings I have ever received!
The instructor was excellent. They knew all of the material without having to read from a notepad or computer.
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.
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.
I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
Course instructor was better prepared and presented better than other trainers. Course manual and references were easier to use as well.

The instructor made the class enjoyable. He presented in a very knowledgeable, personable manner. Best class I've ever attended. Will take one again.

My experience with Lion classes has always been good. Lion Technology always covers the EPA requirements I must follow.
I have over 26 years of environmental compliance experience, and it has been some time since I have attended an environmental regulations workshop. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.
Director of Regulatory Affairs
Best course instructor I've ever had. Funny, relatable, engaging; made it interesting and challenged us as the professionals we are.
