Testimonials

  • The course had a lot of information to absorb. We definitely feel we are in a better position to execute a compliant DG program. Any DG program will always be a work in progress due to the amount of information to work through and due to the amount of changes that occur. We have taken information courses in the past on DG which were not helpful because they just provided the information without explanation. We felt this training course taught us how to look for the right answers when we have a question as well as understanding the specifics for shipping Lithium Ion products.
