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 have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
Excellent class, super instructor, very easy to follow. No rushing through material. Would like to take his class again.

Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.

As always, Lion never disappoints
The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
