Amazing instructor; real-life examples. Lion training gets better every year!
Lion Technology workshops are amazing!! You always learn so much, and the instructors are fantastic.
I can take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
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.
The course was very well structured and covered the material in a clear, concise manner.

Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.
