John Horn, SHRM-SCP, says, SHRM's cert prep course really helped me succeed. I studied the material individually, then went deeper with the course. The topics my instructor focused on helped me prioritize specific areas to review. I was able to ask questions and get support from my fellow classmates.
Herb Lee, SHRM-SCP, says, "Choosing a certification prep class with a reputable SHRM partner was a great choice for me. Having an instructor to ask questions was extremely valuable, and I expanded my HR network and gained insight from my classmates who work in other industries."
