Much better than my previous class with another company. The Lion instructor made sense, kept me awake and made me laugh!

Very well structured, comprehensive, and comparable to live training seminars I've participated in previously. I will recommend the online course to other colleagues with training requirement needs.
Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
The instructor was energetic and made learning fun compared to dry instructors from other training providers.

The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
I will never go anywhere, but to Lion Technology.
I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.

The instructor was very very informative, helpful, understandable and pleasant. This course answered many questions I had, being new to this industry.
I can't say enough how pleased I was with this course! Everything finally makes sense.
