EPA has made available a list on its website with relatively up-to-date information regarding states’ plans to adopt the Generator Improvements Rule.
When Will My State Adopt the RCRA “Generator Improvements”?
States must adopt the elements of the Final Rule that are more stringent than current State rules or risk losing their authorization to run an independent hazardous waste program. States may or may not adopt new reliefs and exemptions added to the Federal RCRA regulations.

I had a positive experience utilizing this educational program. It was very informative, convenient, and rewarding from a career perspective.
I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
Lion's training was by far the best online RCRA training I've ever taken. It was challenging and the layout was great!

The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
Our instructor was very dynamic and kept everyone's interest. Hazmat shipping can be a dry, complicated topic but I was engaged the entire time.

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

I can take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
This was the 1st instructor that has made the topic actually enjoyable and easy to follow and understand. Far better than the "other" training providers our company has attended!
