The Environmental Awareness Bootcamp sets a framework for compliance for those new to the environmental field and those veterans that need a refresher on current environmental laws and regulations, and how they apply to different industries.

In addition, BSI instructors do so in an accurate and engaging way that is easy to understand at any level.
Throughout each day BSI will teach proven and practical compliance strategies that can be brought back to an organization or clientele.
