Lion is my preferred trainer for hazmat and DOT.
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.

More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
I love that the instructor emphasized the thought process behind the regs.

Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.

The exercises in the DOT hazardous materials management course are especially helpful in evaluating your understanding of course information.
