Sr. Environmental Engineer
The instructor does a great job at presenting material in an approachable way. I have been able to save my company about $30,000 in the last year with what I have learned from Lion!
The instructor had knowledge of regulations and understanding of real-world situations. The presentation style was engaging and fostered a positive atmosphere for information sharing.

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.
Having the tutorial buttons for additional information was extremely beneficial.
More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.

We have a very busy work schedule and using Lion enables us to take the course at our own time. It makes it easy for me to schedule my employees' training.
