Lion's course was superior to others I have taken in the past. Very clear in the presentation and the examples helped to explain the content presented.
Hazardous Waste Professional
Best instructor ever! I was going to take my DOT training w/a different provider, but based on this presentation, I will also be doing my DOT training w/Lion!
Hazardous Waste Professional
I can't say enough how pleased I was with this course! Everything finally makes sense.
The instructor was very knowledgeable and provided pertinent information above and beyond the questions that were asked.
This training broke down the regulations in an easy-to-understand manner and made them less overwhelming. I now feel I have the knowledge to make more informed decisions.
I chose Lion's online webinar because it is simple, effective, and easily accessible.
Environmental Health & Safety Technician
I was able to present my scenario to the instructor and worked thru the regulations together. In the past, I attended another training firm's classes. Now, I have no intention of leaving Lion!
Senior Environmental Engineer
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 take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
Lion Technology workshops are amazing!! You always learn so much, and the instructors are fantastic.
