"IPAK's Environmental Toxicology course is literally a life-saving course, as important as learning CPR and first aid. Unfortunately, our world is awash with toxins as a result of malignant industry, impotent regulation, and profound ignorance of these realities by the public at large. This course is an eye-opener and a must-take; and if it's not enough of an impetus to organize to get these toxins out of our life systems then, at least, enough to change our individual behaviors to reduce our exposure to their dangers. This is truly one of those life-changing courses; I cannot recommend it enough." - Alumnus
