One of the best trainings I have ever received!
More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
Convenient; I can train when I want, where I want.

The instructor was excellent. They knew all of the material without having to read from a notepad or computer.
We have a very busy work schedule and using Lion enables us to take the course at our own time. It makes it easy for me to schedule my employees' training.

Lion is at the top of the industry in compliance training. Course content and structure are updated frequently to make annual re-training enjoyable. I like that Lion has experts that I can contact for 1 year after the training.
I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
Lion courses always set the bar for content, reference, and practical application. Membership and access to the experts is an added bonus.
