Excellent job. Made what is very dry material interesting. Thoroughly explained all topics in easy-to-understand terms.
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.
I will never go anywhere, but to Lion Technology.
The instructor made the class very enjoyable and catered to the needs of our group.
The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
