"One of the best decisions I made after deciding to take the PHR/SPHR exam was to enroll in the S/PHR prep class offered through SD SHRM. This class was very informative, engaging, and believe it or Brenda and Kristine delivered the content in such a helpful and fun way that I looked forward to attending each class over the 12 weeks. Thanks to them and all of the helpful tips they provided throughout the course, I am happy to say that I passed BOTH the PHR and SPHR in the same testing window."
-Brett Pugliesi,SHRM-SCP, SPHR, sHRBP

"The S/PHR prep course was exactly what I needed to keep me focused, on track and motivated to study. It was clear the instructors know the material, and they do an amazing job translating it into clear, concise and easy to remember learning topics. It not only prepared me to pass the exam, but also increased the impact I have at the office. Taking the course was the best career decision I could have made!"
