I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
If I need thorough training or updating, I always use Lion. Lion is always the best in both instruction and materials.
The instructor did an excellent job presenting a very dry subject; keeping everyone interested and making it enjoyable.

These are the best classes I attend each year. I always take something away and implement improvements at my sites.
Having the tutorial buttons for additional information was extremely beneficial.
I can take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
