I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
Lion courses always set the bar for content, reference, and practical application. Membership and access to the experts is an added bonus.

Director of Safety & Env Affairs
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
The instructor was very patient and engaging - willing to answer and help explain subject matter.
Material Control Superintendent
Lion Technology workshops are amazing!! You always learn so much, and the instructors are fantastic.
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
I can take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
Lion provided an excellent introduction to environmental regulations, making the transition to a new career as an EHS specialist less daunting of a task. Drinking from a fire hose when the flow of water is lessened, is much more enjoyable!
The instructor was energetic and made learning fun compared to dry instructors from other training providers.
International Trade Compliance Manager
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.
