As always, Lion never disappoints
Very witty instructor, made the long times sitting bearable. One of the few training courses I can say I actually enjoyed.

Amazing instructor; real-life examples. Lion training gets better every year!
The instructor had knowledge of regulations and understanding of real-world situations. The presentation style was engaging and fostered a positive atmosphere for information sharing.

I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
Much better than my previous class with another company. The Lion instructor made sense, kept me awake and made me laugh!
