What students are saying

“I highly recommend the SHRM Education Partner Program to anyone contemplating the SHRM certification exam. I am thrilled to be a SHRM-SCP and I credit the course for my success.” -Beatrice Body Miller, SHRM-SCP

“[Ms. Linda] is a fabulous teacher. She prepared me for the SHRM-CP test, which I passed. She made herself available for questions that popped up after class had ended. I enjoyed the online option for reading with additional quizzes, even though we talked about at length during each class. I hope Holmes continues to teach the SHRM Prep Class with Ms. Linda. The students are in great hands with her by their side.” – Alicia Ledbetter, SHRM-CP, Human Resources Director, Puckett Machinery
