The instructor was very knowledgeable and provided pertinent information above and beyond the questions that were asked.
I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.

I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
I love that the instructor emphasized the thought process behind the regs.

This course went above my expectations from the moment I walked in the door. The instructor led us through two days packed with useful compliance information.
I used the IT support number available and my issue was resolved within a few minutes. I don't see anything that could have made it better.
Lion was very extensive. There was a lot of things that were covered that were actually pertaining to what I do and work with. Great Job. I will be coming back in three years!
