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

I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.

Excellent. I learned more in two days with Lion than at a 5-day program I took with another provider.
Lion's online training is more comprehensive, has better slides, and is a superior training experience than what I would get from other trainers.

Amazing instructor; real-life examples. Lion training gets better every year!
Lion's information is very thorough and accurate. Presenter was very good.
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!
I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
Excellent course. Very interactive. Explanations are great whether you get the questions wrong or right.

The instructor did an excellent job presenting a very dry subject; keeping everyone interested and making it enjoyable.
