These are the best classes I attend each year. I always take something away and implement improvements at my sites.
This course went above my expectations from the moment I walked in the door. The instructor led us through two days packed with useful compliance information.
The workshop covered a lot of information without being too overwhelming. Lion is much better, more comprehensive than other training providers.
The instructor made the class enjoyable. He presented in a very knowledgeable, personable manner. Best class I've ever attended. Will take one again.
