The instructor's energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge of the subject make the class a great learning experience!
I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
My experience with Lion classes has always been good. Lion Technology always covers the EPA requirements I must follow.
I had a positive experience utilizing this educational program. It was very informative, convenient, and rewarding from a career perspective.

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.

The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
Lion is my preferred trainer for hazmat and DOT.
I really enjoy your workshops. Thank you for such a great program and all the help Lion has provided me over the years!
