I was recently offered an opportunity to take my training through another company, but I politely declined. I only attend Lion Technology workshops.
Material Production/Logistics Manager
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.
I will never go anywhere, but to Lion Technology.
The instructor was great, explaining complex topics in terms that were easily understandable and answering questions clearly and thoroughly.
Lion courses always set the bar for content, reference, and practical application. Membership and access to the experts is an added bonus.

Much better than my previous class with another company. The Lion instructor made sense, kept me awake and made me laugh!
Enterprise Safety Manager
The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
Very witty instructor, made the long times sitting bearable. One of the few training courses I can say I actually enjoyed.

Excellent course. Very interactive. Explanations are great whether you get the questions wrong or right.
