Very witty instructor, made the long times sitting bearable. One of the few training courses I can say I actually enjoyed.

Lion was very responsive to my initial questions and the website was user friendly.

I love that the instructor emphasized the thought process behind the regs.

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.
The instructor's energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge of the subject make the class a great learning experience!
