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.
This training broke down the regulations in an easy-to-understand manner and made them less overwhelming. I now feel I have the knowledge to make more informed decisions.
Energetic/enthusiastic! Made training enjoyable, understandable and fun!
Hazardous Waste Professional
One of the best trainings I have ever received!
I have over 26 years of environmental compliance experience, and it has been some time since I have attended an environmental regulations workshop. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.
Director of Regulatory Affairs
I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
The instructor was very knowledgeable and provided pertinent information above and beyond the questions that were asked.
These are the best commercial course references I have seen (10+ years). Great job!
EHS & Facility Engineer
The instructor was probably the best I ever had! He made the class enjoyable, was humorous at times, and very knowledgeable.
