As part of LION’s ongoing commitment to fulfill the personal safety, readiness, and identity needs of first responders, the company recently completed construction of its new state-of-the-art training center in Dayton, Ohio.
Housed in LION’s corporate office, LION University provides advanced education on the complex and technical nature of firefighter personal protective equipment (PPE). Each course, designed to challenge and engage participants, is supported with a comprehensive curriculum with instruction from leading industry professionals.
Marking the official opening with a ribbon cutting, LION University’s inaugural professional development program will be launched on September 21. LION University is an innovation in industry training keeping LION dealer sales representatives current on requirements of first responders, and technical advancements across the marketplace.
“We are proud to educate dealer sales representatives of LION on the unique differences built into each LION PPE product,” says Mark Smith, Senior Vice President of LION. “We recognize the complexity and technical nature of PPE sales to first responders. LION is pleased to have this strategic initiative come to life and keep our sales representatives as well as first responders ready for action.”
