These are the best classes I attend each year. I always take something away and implement improvements at my sites.
I used the IT support number available and my issue was resolved within a few minutes. I don't see anything that could have made it better.
The online course was well thought out and organized, with good interaction between the student and the course.
Material Release Agent
The instructor was energetic and made learning fun compared to dry instructors from other training providers.
International Trade Compliance Manager
Very good. I have always appreciated the way Lion Tech develops, presents and provides training and materials.
My experience with Lion training, both online and in the classroom, is that they are far better organized and provide a better sequential explanation of the material.
Manager, Dangerous Goods Transportation
I can take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
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
Excellent class, super instructor, very easy to follow. No rushing through material. Would like to take his class again.
EH&S Facility Maintenance & Security Manager
I have over 26 years of environmental compliance experience, and it has been some time since I have attended an environmental regulations workshop. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.
