Having the tutorial buttons for additional information was extremely beneficial.
I was able to present my scenario to the instructor and worked thru the regulations together. In the past, I attended another training firm's classes. Now, I have no intention of leaving Lion!
Senior Environmental Engineer
Excellent. I learned more in two days with Lion than at a 5-day program I took with another provider.
I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
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.
Director of Regulatory Affairs
Excellent job. Made what is very dry material interesting. Thoroughly explained all topics in easy-to-understand terms.
Lion's online training is more comprehensive, has better slides, and is a superior training experience than what I would get from other trainers.
District Environmental Manager
Well designed and thorough program. 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!
The course was very well structured and covered the material in a clear, concise manner.
