Excellent. I learned more in two days with Lion than at a 5-day program I took with another provider.
The course was very well structured and covered the material in a clear, concise manner.
Hazmat Shipping Professional
The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.
I really enjoy your workshops. Thank you for such a great program and all the help Lion has provided me over the years!

I had a positive experience utilizing this educational program. It was very informative, convenient, and rewarding from a career perspective.
The instructor made the class enjoyable. He presented in a very knowledgeable, personable manner. Best class I've ever attended. Will take one again.

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
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 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.
