I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
These are the best classes I attend each year. I always take something away and implement improvements at my sites.
The instructor was very patient and engaging - willing to answer and help explain subject matter.

Energetic/enthusiastic! Made training enjoyable, understandable and fun!
