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
Very witty instructor, made the long times sitting bearable. One of the few training courses I can say I actually enjoyed.
Senior EHS Engineer
I have attended other training providers, but Lion is best. Lion is king of the hazmat jungle!!!
Hazardous Waste Technician
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.
The course is well thought out and organized in a way that leads to a clearer understanding of the total training.
Hazmat Shipping Professional
I love that the instructor emphasized the thought process behind the regs.
Corporate Product Stewardship Specialist
The instructor had knowledge of regulations and understanding of real-world situations. The presentation style was engaging and fostered a positive atmosphere for information sharing.
Safety & Environmental Compliance Officer
The instructor was great, explaining complex topics in terms that were easily understandable and answering questions clearly and thoroughly.
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.
No comparison. Lion has the best RCRA training ever!!
