To qualify for the 12-year requalification period for volumetric expansion testing (instead of the previous 5-year period), cylinders must be:

US DOT requires hazmat training once every three years for all "hazmat employees." (49 CFR 172.704)
More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
The instructor was very engaging and helped less experienced people understand the concepts.
Best course instructor I've ever had. Funny, relatable, engaging; made it interesting and challenged us as the professionals we are.
The instructor does a great job at presenting material in an approachable way. I have been able to save my company about $30,000 in the last year with what I have learned from Lion!
Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
This is a very informative training compared to others. It covers everything I expect to learn and even a lot of new things.
Waste Management Professional
Lion's online training is more comprehensive, has better slides, and is a superior training experience than what I would get from other trainers.
District Environmental Manager
I will never go anywhere, but to Lion Technology.
I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
I can't say enough how pleased I was with this course! Everything finally makes sense.
