You're the Hazmat Inspector: 49 CFR Compliant or Not?From time to time, shippers, carriers, and inspectors disagree about what is or is not a violation of the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR).

I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
Lion is at the top of the industry in compliance training. Course content and structure are updated frequently to make annual re-training enjoyable. I like that Lion has experts that I can contact for 1 year after the training.
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.
Having the tutorial buttons for additional information was extremely beneficial.
The instructor was probably the best I ever had! He made the class enjoyable, was humorous at times, and very knowledgeable.

The instructor was excellent. They knew all of the material without having to read from a notepad or computer.
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!
