Meet the Instructors

"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
