I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.

The course was very informative and presented in a way that was easily understood and remembered. I would recommend this course.
Hazmat Shipping Professional
Attending Lion Technology classes should be mandatory for every facility that ships or stores hazmat.
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.
Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.
