Lion courses always set the bar for content, reference, and practical application. Membership and access to the experts is an added bonus.

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!
Much better than my previous class with another company. The Lion instructor made sense, kept me awake and made me laugh!

I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
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!
Excellent job. Made what is very dry material interesting. Thoroughly explained all topics in easy-to-understand terms.
I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.
