Best course instructor I've ever had. Funny, relatable, engaging; made it interesting and challenged us as the professionals we are.
The instructor does a great job at presenting material in an approachable way. I have been able to save my company about $30,000 in the last year with what I have learned from Lion!

The instructor was very very informative, helpful, understandable and pleasant. This course answered many questions I had, being new to this industry.
Very well structured, comprehensive, and comparable to live training seminars I've participated in previously. I will recommend the online course to other colleagues with training requirement needs.
This course went above my expectations from the moment I walked in the door. The instructor led us through two days packed with useful compliance information.
Lion courses are the standard to which all other workshops should strive for!
