This week, individuals and organizations around the world are reaching out to provide support for those in Houston and the surrounding area impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

Whenever people are rushing to help in the wake of a disaster, fraudsters will work to take advantage of that generosity. To ensure your charitable donation goes to an organization that can do real good, check out Charity Navigator, Charity Watch, or these tips for the Federal Trade Commission.

Lion - Quotes

I have over 26 years of environmental compliance experience, and it has been some time since I have attended an environmental regulations workshop. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.

Frank Sizemore

Director of Regulatory Affairs

Lion's training was by far the best online RCRA training I've ever taken. It was challenging and the layout was great!

Paul Harbison

Hazardous Waste Professional

The exercises in the DOT hazardous materials management course are especially helpful in evaluating your understanding of course information.

Very good. I have always appreciated the way Lion Tech develops, presents and provides training and materials.

The instructor was energetic and made learning fun compared to dry instructors from other training providers.

Lion does a great job summarizing and communicating complicated EH&S-related regulations.

I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.

The instructor was very engaging and helped less experienced people understand the concepts.

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!
