I would recommend attending the 1-week PHR/SPHR prep course. It was the perfect way for me to prepare for the test. I was able to escape my normally hectic life and focus my attention on my career goals for five days. Elga was very knowledgeable as well as entertaining. I scheduled my test date for shortly after the class and I PASSED the test!
-- Melinda Tipton, SPHR

I attended the class in Los Angeles at the end of January 2018. So excited to say I passed the PHR test! Her class provided all the essential tools needed to pass the exam. Her tips and materials prepare you fully to take the test. Her course is easy to follow and entertaining! I found the test not to be as difficult as I thought it was going to be. Due to her teachings you have all the resources needed to be successful. Thank you!
-- Gina Lopez, PHR, FPC

I recently attended the PHR/SPHR exam and recently passed the exam. I would without a doubt recommend her class to anyone looking to take one of these exams. She is a wealth of knowledge and genuinely cares about you understanding the material, doing well and passing. She is very patient and brings a lot of enthusiasm to her class which I really appreciated. While the course was an intense 5 days, she made it enjoyable and was extremely engaging. The classes are small which made for a positive learning environment. I sure would recommend her- she knows her stuff!
-- Shari H., PHR

I took my PHR Exam just 4 short days after I attended the Exam Prep Workshop and passed! She is an amazing instructor and all around great human being. It is EXTREMELY important to her that others succeed in really anything that they do. I was amazed that she took such a huge body of knowledge and was able to cover and help actually retain the information she was teaching. When I felt overwhelmed, she reassured me with confidence that we would cover all the material needed and she kept her promise! As soon as I began the exam, I smiled, answers were coming to me with confidence and ease. I think the most unique thing about her course is that not only does she teach you the knowledge and concepts, she really helps you understand how to take the exam. I would recommend this workshop to anyone including someone who has very little HR Experience or knowledge. Thank you!! next stop, SPHR!
-- Amber Evaro, PHR

I just took the PHR exam and passed!!! I attended your workshop in Nashville and finally felt confident enough to take the exam. The resources you gave to me really helped prepare me for the exam. The process was intimidating, but the exam was not as difficult as I thought it would be, because I was thoroughly prepared! I'm now going to start preparing for the SPHR certification. I hope to make it to your next Nashville workshop! You're awesome!
-- Nicola White, PHR

I took the PHR/SPHR course in October 2017 and it was incredible! Not only did I learn a ton, but I felt really confident in taking the SPHR exam after the course. I am usually not a good test taker, but Elga is a wonderful instructor and so knowledgeable in the HR world that she really helped calm my nerves. She will help you in any way that she can and can answer any question. She gives you great tips on what to watch for in the exam, what material will most likely be on the exam that you should focus on, and a TON of study materials to use and review after the course. I had a wonderful experience and I really and truly think anyone who is going for their PHR or SPHR should spend the time and money and take Elga's course. You will not regret it! I am also happy to say that I passed the SPHR exam in November 2017! THANK YOU!!!
-- Lauren Ryerson, SPHR

She is the best on what she does. I participated in one of her 5 days workshop to get ready for my PHR Exam. She not only gave us all the materials and and all the practice exams but she also shared with us all her knowledge and experiences in all the subjects. I’ll definitely recommend her to anyone looking to have the best and more complete PHR/SPHR workshop possible. I passed my PHR test on the first try. Thanks!
-- Veronica Reveron, PHR

I'm happy to say after attending the PHR/SPHR 5-day workshop, and receiving the training materials to study for my PHR exam, I passed on my first attempt! I would definitely recommend her workshop for those wanting to obtain their certification. She is extremely thorough and knowledgeable because she has real world experience. Elga is also very encouraging and makes the learning experience fun. Thank you!
-- Audra Augustin, PHR

She creates a learning experience that is for all types of learners.  Her positive upbeat energy is contagious and you will remember information she presents.  I had the opportunity to attend her PHR/SPHR Exam Prep Workshop in October of 2017, and have bragged about Elga's extensive knowledge of Human Resources to all of my peers practicing HR since leaving her class.  I am truly confident in stating I am a Human Resources Professional because of the knowledge and tools she shared with me.  Most of all I appreciate the passion Elga has for everything she does, she followed up with me after her class to make sure I was studying and keeping a positive attitude.  She was the first one to call and congratulate me after I received my preliminary PASS results a week after her Workshop.  Elga genuinely wants others to succeed and follow their passion in life.  I would recommend getting to know her, she is an amazing person! 
-- Melissa Evans, PHR

I highly recommend the PHR/SPHR course to all HR professionals aspiring to achieve their certifications. Her passion for HR and her ability to relate study material topics to real world HR situations was instrumental in my preparation for the SPHR exam. She has helpful and mindful tips and learning tricks to help students grasp and retain the information presented in her seminar. Because of her effective teaching methods I was able to pass the SPHR exam (my first attempt) 3 days after completing her course. Thank you!
-- Crystal L.B. McBride, SPHR

Rarely would one find a formal written endorsement from me regarding testimonials. I try and only do this when I feel the person is clearly above and beyond in their professionalism and ability to influence others through their leadership.  She is one such person. She is a person of influence in the field of human resources. In May of 2017, I attended the SPHR preparatory course led by her. I routinely refer to this course as a "Total Emersion Course."   The course is designed with one primary goal: to successfully navigate and pass the rigorous SPHR exam. You will not have a single wasted moment with her, every minute of her workshops is well spent with you, the client, and your success. Upon completion of this "emersion experience," I sat for the SPHR exam in Lexington, KY. one week later. Result: PASS! It is with great pleasure and deserved distinction that I personally recommend her.  In my opinion, she has no competition at her level; there are just other people teaching PHR/SPHR courses.  Thank you. You represent our profession in a mighty way.
-- Dr. David W. Guess, SPHR

I took the 5 day SHPR/PHR Certification prep class in March 2016. She is extremely knowledgeable and communicates very well - her method of teaching isn't just reading she give examples from her vast experience which makes learning so much easier if you can apply to a real life situation. Her passion for the field of HR is addicting. I would highly recommend this class to anyone persuing their SPRH/PHR Certificate. Everything you need to pass is in this class - and with such a great teacher you can't fail! I took the test May 16, 2016 and passed! THANK YOU!
