RE: EMS Training-Reply



Andrea-

Beth had a good idea. One of the companies on that list is Excel
Partnership. I took my ISO 14000 lead auditor training from them in 1997.
It was excellent. Another PENNTAP specialist took their course two weeks
ago and had the same reaction. You can contact them at
<www.excelpartnership.com> or (800) 374-3818.
