I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.
Tom Bush, Jr.
If I need thorough training or updating, I always use Lion. Lion is always the best in both instruction and materials.
Lion is at the top of the industry in compliance training. Course content and structure are updated frequently to make annual re-training enjoyable. I like that Lion has experts that I can contact for 1 year after the training.
Much better than my previous class with another company. The Lion instructor made sense, kept me awake and made me laugh!
Enterprise Safety Manager
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
I like the consistency of Lion workshops. The materials are well put together and instructors are top notch!
Permitting, Compliance & Environmental Manager
My experience with Lion classes has always been good. Lion Technology always covers the EPA requirements I must follow.
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 patient and engaging - willing to answer and help explain subject matter.
Material Control Superintendent
The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.
