I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.

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.
Lion's course was superior to others I have taken in the past. Very clear in the presentation and the examples helped to explain the content presented.

I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
If I need thorough training or updating, I always use Lion. Lion is always the best in both instruction and materials.
The instructor was probably the best I ever had! He made the class enjoyable, was humorous at times, and very knowledgeable.
