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.

Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
Very witty instructor, made the long times sitting bearable. One of the few training courses I can say I actually enjoyed.

Very good. I have always appreciated the way Lion Tech develops, presents and provides training and materials.
The course was very informative and presented in a way that was easily understood and remembered. I would recommend this course.

The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.
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.
More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
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.
