    I'm not big on taking tests. The information was good, but it was too long. It would be more desirable if this test were broken up into smaller lessons so we could retain the information

    Out of date (including generator requirements and legal summary) Did not systematically address hazardous waste requirements (but ok as an overview) Why focus on Montana? Not a model for state HW regulation Global picture is very out of date

    Out of date (including generator requirements and legal summary) Did not systematically address hazardous waste requirements (but ok as an overview) Why focus on Montana? Not a model for state HW regulation Global picture is very out of date. In my opinion, time to retire this course or completely revamp to address current picture, legal requirements.

    Questions are all over the place and really offer no benefit to the user except to challenge their memorization skills. More information should be offered in a business specific presentation to prevent releases or accidents that could occur in our day-to-day operations.
