Want to fuel your
job progression?

Holding a certification corresponds to a powerful boost to career momentum. HR professionals holding either certification are more likely to advance to more senior roles.

Is it time
to set yourself apart?

Having your certification, whether PHR, SHRM-CP, SPHR or SHRM-SCP, gives you that upper hand.  Finding ways to set yourself apart from your colleagues can be a constant challenge for most HR professionals. 

Time for a
higher salary?

HR professionals who hold certification tend to make more money than their peers who do not. This difference becomes significantly more the more senior the position.

Lori, your instructions and lectures on all of your training modules is outstanding and remarkable. I love what you have done. You have described everything in such a thorough and organized manner. I also love the the HR cards because it helps me to understand what I’ve been doing all along but didn’t know the correct terminology for it.

"Lori helped me to pass my first SHRM-CP test! It was the perfect mix of live question and answer, plus technical information from the text book. The test prep class was instrumental in understanding not only the content to prepare, but also learning the way the test is administered.

Lori’s approach is pragmatic and direct. It’s a terrific approach to learning the material.”

— Michael, SHRM-SCP

"Your course was super helpful in understanding how the questions would be structured and I will recommend your course to my colleagues - thanks again!"
