No comparison. Lion has the best RCRA training ever!!
The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.
If I need thorough training or updating, I always use Lion. Lion is always the best in both instruction and materials.
I love that the instructor emphasized the thought process behind the regs.
Corporate Product Stewardship Specialist
The course is well thought out and organized in a way that leads to a clearer understanding of the total training.
Hazmat Shipping Professional
The instructor was very engaging and helped less experienced people understand the concepts.
I really enjoyed this training. Even after years on both sides of the comprehension coin, I find myself still learning! The quality of the delivery exceeded much of the training I have received in the past.
These are the best commercial course references I have seen (10+ years). Great job!
