You blew the doors off the competition!
Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
The instructor was excellent. They knew all of the material without having to read from a notepad or computer.
This was the 1st instructor that has made the topic actually enjoyable and easy to follow and understand. Far better than the "other" training providers our company has attended!
