Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
Lion's training was by far the best online RCRA training I've ever taken. It was challenging and the layout was great!

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 my preferred trainer for hazmat and DOT.

Excellent. I learned more in two days with Lion than at a 5-day program I took with another provider.
