5/23/2017“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet,” Shakespeare wrote in Romeo and Juliet.

That’s why choosing the right shipping name is so important.

Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.

Our instructor was very dynamic and kept everyone's interest. Hazmat shipping can be a dry, complicated topic but I was engaged the entire time.

Excellent job. Made what is very dry material interesting. Thoroughly explained all topics in easy-to-understand terms.
I really enjoyed this training. Even after years on both sides of the comprehension coin, I find myself still learning! The quality of the delivery exceeded much of the training I have received in the past.
Lion is my preferred trainer for hazmat and DOT.
The course is well thought out and organized in a way that leads to a clearer understanding of the total training.

More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
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!
I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
