“If you wanna pass, take this class!”

“2 for 2! These are monster exams and Elga equips you with all the knowledge you need to pass. I can’t believe I passed the PHR in only 3 short weeks of passing the aPHR. You cannot memorize for these exams..it is critical thinking and understanding of the material. Elga has a way of explaining the topics so you can comprehend fully. Thank you, Elga! I look forward to continue to shoot for the stars with you!” – Grace Duy, aPHR, PHR

“I started preparing for the aPHR Exam on my own at first and quickly realized I needed something more to keep me focused. I found Elga’s training class and enrolled the day it started. Once the class started I knew immediately that I made the right choice. Elga is engaging, smart, and very knowledgeable in all that is HR. There is no way I could’ve done this on my own…thank you. I look forward to starting the PHR classes tomorrow!” – Lynn Flanagan, aPHR, PHR

“Elga, once again I can’t thank you enough for your knowledge, words of encouragement, four hours of study session help, and confidence you gave me to pass the PHR Exam. You truly make a difference in people’s lives. I couldn’t have passed without you….thank you!” – Lynn Flanagan, aPHR, PHR
