Very good. I have always appreciated the way Lion Tech develops, presents and provides training and materials.

Hazmat Shipping Professional
The instructor was very patient and engaging - willing to answer and help explain subject matter.
Material Control Superintendent
Amazing instructor; real-life examples. Lion training gets better every year!
The instructor was great, explaining complex topics in terms that were easily understandable and answering questions clearly and thoroughly.
Lion's online training is more comprehensive, has better slides, and is a superior training experience than what I would get from other trainers.
District Environmental Manager
Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.

I was recently offered an opportunity to take my training through another company, but I politely declined. I only attend Lion Technology workshops.
Material Production/Logistics Manager
