The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
Very good. I have always appreciated the way Lion Tech develops, presents and provides training and materials.
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!
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!
This is a very informative training compared to others. It covers everything I expect to learn and even a lot of new things.
