Amazing instructor; real-life examples. Lion training gets better every year!
I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
You blew the doors off the competition!
Convenient; I can train when I want, where I want.

The instructor was great, explaining complex topics in terms that were easily understandable and answering questions clearly and thoroughly.
I have attended other training providers, but Lion is best. Lion is king of the hazmat jungle!!!
Hazardous Waste Technician
I can take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
The instructor kept the class engaged and made learning fun. There was a lot of information to cover but time flew by. I will definitely use Lion in the future!
Hazmat Shipping Professional
If I need thorough training or updating, I always use Lion. Lion is always the best in both instruction and materials.
I like the consistency of Lion workshops. The materials are well put together and instructors are top notch!
