I have attended other training providers, but Lion is best. Lion is king of the hazmat jungle!!!

Lion courses always set the bar for content, reference, and practical application. Membership and access to the experts is an added bonus.

The instructor was probably the best I ever had! He made the class enjoyable, was humorous at times, and very knowledgeable.

These are the best commercial course references I have seen (10+ years). Great job!
EHS & Facility Engineer
The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.
I was able to present my scenario to the instructor and worked thru the regulations together. In the past, I attended another training firm's classes. Now, I have no intention of leaving Lion!

My experience with Lion training, both online and in the classroom, is that they are far better organized and provide a better sequential explanation of the material.
Manager, Dangerous Goods Transportation
We have a very busy work schedule and using Lion enables us to take the course at our own time. It makes it easy for me to schedule my employees' training.

Lion's online training is more comprehensive, has better slides, and is a superior training experience than what I would get from other trainers.

The instructor made the class enjoyable. He presented in a very knowledgeable, personable manner. Best class I've ever attended. Will take one again.
