As always, Lion never disappoints
Lion's training was by far the best online RCRA training I've ever taken. It was challenging and the layout was great!
Hazardous Waste Professional
Excellent job. Made what is very dry material interesting. Thoroughly explained all topics in easy-to-understand terms.
I can take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
We have a very busy work schedule and using Lion enables us to take the course at our own time. It makes it easy for me to schedule my employees' training.
Hazmat Shipping Professional
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
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!
Having the tutorial buttons for additional information was extremely beneficial.
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
If I need thorough training or updating, I always use Lion. Lion is always the best in both instruction and materials.
