Very well structured, comprehensive, and comparable to live training seminars I've participated in previously. I will recommend the online course to other colleagues with training requirement needs.
My experience with Lion training, both online and in the classroom, is that they are far better organized and provide a better sequential explanation of the material.
Manager, Dangerous Goods Transportation
I was recently offered an opportunity to take my training through another company, but I politely declined. I only attend Lion Technology workshops.
Material Production/Logistics Manager
The instructor did an excellent job presenting a very dry subject; keeping everyone interested and making it enjoyable.
Hazardous Waste Professional
Excellent job. Made what is very dry material interesting. Thoroughly explained all topics in easy-to-understand terms.
The instructor's energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge of the subject make the class a great learning experience!
The course is well thought out and organized in a way that leads to a clearer understanding of the total training.
Hazmat Shipping Professional
This course went above my expectations from the moment I walked in the door. The instructor led us through two days packed with useful compliance information.
More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
I chose Lion's online webinar because it is simple, effective, and easily accessible.
