We believe the best instructors are those that routinely work in industrial and commercial facilities solving real-world problems and developing compliance solutions.
Each of our instructors have 20+ years of experience and are well credentialed. We routinely evaluate performance and effectiveness and make changes where new perspective or more relevant experience is required. Our training materials, techniques, and instructors are guided by an Ed.D., SHRM-SCP senior instructional designer.
As a leading environmental training organization, we remain devoted to excellence in learning and teaching and the quality of our courses. Our instructors’ background speak for themselves and our two decade commitment as an organization is well established.
