I can't say enough how pleased I was with this course! Everything finally makes sense.
Lion was very extensive. There was a lot of things that were covered that were actually pertaining to what I do and work with. Great Job. I will be coming back in three years!

Having the tutorial buttons for additional information was extremely beneficial.
No comparison. Lion has the best RCRA training ever!!
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.

Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
Lion courses always set the bar for content, reference, and practical application. Membership and access to the experts is an added bonus.
