The workshop covered a lot of information without being too overwhelming. Lion is much better, more comprehensive than other training providers.
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.
As always, Lion never disappoints
Excellent class, super instructor, very easy to follow. No rushing through material. Would like to take his class again.

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.

Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.

Lion was very responsive to my initial questions and the website was user friendly.
