WHAT PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING
The program provided an invaluable introduction to the environmental regulatory approval and compliance process. The fact that so many of the attendees are well established in the industry is a real testament to the value, quality, and professionalism of the event.
You did an excellent job covering the material within a limited timeframe...and kept things interesting along the way. I learned a lot, enjoyed the course, and am looking forward to applying my newfound knowledge and skills in the field.
Course was more than expected. Well done.
...takes you through a project cradle to grave which many of us do not get to experience. Good format change.
