Here's what members are saying about the PHRA Prep Course for SHRM Certification:

"After recently passing the SHRM- CP exam I attest a lot of my success to the PHRA SHRM- CP/SCP prep course.  I believe the course was extremely instrumental in preparing me for the exam.  The instructors provided great insight and knowledge on the subject matter and explained the functional areas in a simplistic way.  The exam was certainly challenging but without the help of the prep class and the SHRM Learning System I don’t think I would have seen the same results.  I highly recommend attending this course to anyone who is considering pursuing these certifications." - Megan Rodgers, SHRM-CP & PHRA Member, Attended PHRA's Spring 2016 12-week SHRM-CP/SCP
