Thanks to HR Certified, I knew exactly how to prepare. The real-scenarios in class brought the concepts to life for me. I am pleased to share that I am now a certified Senior Professional in Human Resources! Thank you, HR Certified!

I’m telling you people, HR Certified was so good, I almost want to sign up and take the course a 2nd time!

The HR Certified course was instrumental in preparing for my PHR. I would highly recommend working with HR Certified in gaining your HR Certification!

- Julie Whittington, PHR

Last fall, I had the opportunity to participate in an HR certification prep course being lead by Anthony. He was phenomenal! He made the class fun and the study materials easy to understand. He also did a good job keeping us on task with what we needed to know for the exam. Needless to say, I was successful in obtaining my SPHR. I would definitely recommend HR Certified to others who may be preparing for their certification.
