I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
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!

My experience with Lion classes has always been good. Lion Technology always covers the EPA requirements I must follow.
I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.
