Hazardous Waste Professional
The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.
Attending Lion Technology classes should be mandatory for every facility that ships or stores hazmat.
This training broke down the regulations in an easy-to-understand manner and made them less overwhelming. I now feel I have the knowledge to make more informed decisions.
Lion provided an excellent introduction to environmental regulations, making the transition to a new career as an EHS specialist less daunting of a task. Drinking from a fire hose when the flow of water is lessened, is much more enjoyable!
The course is well thought out and organized in a way that leads to a clearer understanding of the total training.

The instructor created a great learning environment.
