I always take something away and implement improvements at my sites. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had. I will not stray from Lion again! The presentation style was engaging and fostered a positive atmosphere for information sharing. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.
I only attend Lion Technology workshops. I learned more in two days with Lion than at a 5-day program I took with another provider. They knew all of the material without having to read from a notepad or computer. Lion is much better. Hands down.
I now feel I have the knowledge to make more informed decisions. I will be visiting Lion training again. Lion is king of the hazmat jungle!!! Everything finally makes sense. The instructor led us through two days packed with useful compliance information. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun. He made the class enjoyable, was humorous at times, and very knowledgeable. Great job! Made what is very dry material interesting.
Thoroughly explained all topics in easy-to-understand terms. Funny, relatable, engaging; made it interesting and challenged us as the professionals we are. She did her best to make sure students were really comprehending the information. You always learn so much, and the instructors are fantastic. Lion is always the best in both instruction and materials.
Very interactive. Explanations are great whether you get the questions wrong or right. I don't see anything that could have made it better. I liked the option to review FAQs and re-review the quiz questions. It covers everything I expect to learn and even a lot of new things. I am not a fan of online training but this was put together very well. I would recommend Lion to others.
I will recommend the online course to other colleagues with training requirement needs. I would recommend this course.
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. It was very informative, convenient, and rewarding from a career perspective. The depth of instructor knowledge is always beyond any other training I have participated in. The material and presentation are far superior than others I have taken. Membership and access to the experts is an added bonus. No rushing through material.
Would like to take his class again. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities. It makes it easy for me to schedule my employees' training. Very clear in the presentation and the examples helped to explain the content presented.
Course manual and references were easier to use as well. There was a lot of information to cover but time flew by. I will definitely use Lion in the future! Hazmat shipping can be a dry, complicated topic but I was engaged the entire time. In the past, I attended another training firm's classes.
Now, I have no intention of leaving Lion! Lion is much better, more comprehensive than other training providers. Excellent summary of requirements with references.
Inclusion of regulations in hard copy form, as well as full electronic with state pertinent regulations included is a great bonus! One of the few training courses I can say I actually enjoyed. He presented in a very knowledgeable, personable manner. Best class I've ever attended. Will take one again. Far better than the "other" training providers our company has attended! 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.
It was challenging and the layout was great! In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything. Thank you for such a great program and all the help Lion has provided me over the years! The materials are well put together and instructors are top notch! I have always appreciated the way Lion Tech develops, presents and provides training and materials.
This course answered many questions I had, being new to this industry. Drinking from a fire hose when the flow of water is lessened, is much more enjoyable! There was a lot of things that were covered that were actually pertaining to what I do and work with. Great Job. I will be coming back in three years! The Lion instructor made sense, kept me awake and made me laugh!
