Hazmat Shipping Professional
Excellent job. Made what is very dry material interesting. Thoroughly explained all topics in easy-to-understand terms.
The instructor was probably the best I ever had! He made the class enjoyable, was humorous at times, and very knowledgeable.

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 will never go anywhere, but to Lion Technology.
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!
Having the tutorial buttons for additional information was extremely beneficial.
The instructor made the class very enjoyable and catered to the needs of our group.
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 can't say enough how pleased I was with this course! Everything finally makes sense.
