Very witty instructor, made the long times sitting bearable. One of the few training courses I can say I actually enjoyed.
Senior EHS Engineer
The training was impressive. I am not a fan of online training but this was put together very well. I would recommend Lion to others.
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.

Safety & Environmental Compliance Officer
The online course was well thought out and organized, with good interaction between the student and the course.

Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.
Chemical Laboratory Manager
I can't say enough how pleased I was with this course! Everything finally makes sense.
Excellent job. Made what is very dry material interesting. Thoroughly explained all topics in easy-to-understand terms.
I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
