I passed the PHR exam today!!! I couldn’t have done it without the tools, dedication and resources provide by Elga and her team. I took the in-person 5-day bootcamp, online recorded sessions, Friday study group sessions, and 1:1 sessions. The attention to detail, professionalism and customization to your learning style is unmatched. I’m proud to be her latest graduate and couldn’t be more grateful. Thank you, Elga!

Elga , I am so thankful for your commitment and willingness to help me pass my PHR certification in first attempt. Your motivation, encouragement, and support constantly inspires me.

I’m so thankful to have worked with Elga to prepare for my PHR exam. Not only is Elga a master in the knowledge base necessary to sit for the PHR/SPHR or SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP, she is passionate about your success and empowers you to feel confident about the exam! Working with Elga was like having my own personal PHR mentor that was as invested in me reaching my goal of PHR certification as I was.

With Elga’s teaching and coaching, I was able to pass my PHR the very first time! I look forward to working with her in the future as I work towards my SHRM-SCP and SPHR. Thank you, Elga!

Jeremy Tyler, PHR

I could not have achieved the PHR without Elga’s help. My background is in Talent Acquisition/Recruiting so I had a steep learning curve for several areas of the exam that are outside of my expertise and experience. The one week training session, study material, and the 24/7 access to webinars made a huge difference. I listened to the webinars over and over again. Elga makes it her personal mission to help you prepare and pass your exam. Her commitment to your success is second to none.

Thank you again. You are the absolute best at what you do!

Elga is a very passionate HR professional. I took her training course for the HR certification and no surprise she effective training skills helped me clear my exam. Her training delivery skills are her niche and this makes her stand out as best from the others. She gives multiple yet simple examples from common situations, and the way she explains, gets registered in minds for a long long time. She is dedicated and committed to her profession and her trainees and I am glad I made the right choice. She never left me in my journey through my certification and kept motivating all throughout. Elga is a true professional and a very nice human being. Thank you for all your help Elga. Wish you good luck in all your ventures. Stay in touch!

Thanks, Manica

Kassy Franz (Buccilla), PHR – I recently was lucky enough to attend Elga’s PHR/SPHR Training Class in Columbus, OH. I went into the class not really knowing what to expect but knowing that my main objective was to leave the class with enough information and tools to successfully pass my PHR Certification Exam. Elga seriously blew any expectations I might have had out of the water. Her class was enjoyable, very informative and was one of the main reasons I was able to successfully pass my PHR certification exam yesterday. The PHR exam was no joke, one of the hardest things I have ever taken and I will be forever grateful to Elga for setting me up for success! Thank you for everything – I highly recommend Elga’s training courses to anyone!

Shane Sixsmith, PHR testimonial success story

Shane Sixsmith, PHR

I was told while working in the HR Department that it was time to go out and get my PHR certification. At first I was lost, not knowing where to look or where to go. Then I met Elga and HRTrainingClasses,com. Elga is a one stop shop for anything that you or your company needs for HR training and/or getting prepared for HR certifications. I joined Elga in a PHR training seminar in Nashville and was shocked at the little content that I actually knew. However, Elga was there with all the answers and support that I needed to pass the test. I cannot recommend the seminars enough, Elga has a way of making the content easy to relate to, and provides real life examples so that you actually comprehend the content. Now I have passed my PHR exam and owe a lot of it to Elga and her team.

Wow!!! We always joke around that I’m ‘Just an IT Guy’ but today I’ve become a ‘PHR® Certified IT Guy’! There is no doubt in my mind that you ARE the best HR instructor especially when it comes to preparing people for their HR Certification Exams! I’ve listened to many other speakers, both in the HR field and in many other fields and without a doubt, you will not find a more dynamic, charismatic, engaging, intelligent, effective and passionate speaker as you Elga! Thank you for all that you do and thank you for all of the knowledge that you have imparted on me that has enabled me to pass this ‘monster exam’ called PHR!!!

Today, I passed my PHR Test. It would not have been possible without the help and dedication of Elga Lejarza of HR Training Classes.com. Sometimes things in our life get in the way of us succeeding. I did not pass my first time around due to life getting in the way but Elga worked with me the next time around to make sure I passed. Without paying additional monies, I was able to sit in on the eight week webinars and she met with me and drilled me for the last six weeks before I took my test. I am indebted to Elga, Mike, Carmen and Annabel for their hard work and making learning fun. Elga’s stories of the different ideas she gave us to remember something were very helpful. Thank you, Sandy

If you are looking for a comprehensive, knowledgeable, in depth trainer with a personal touch, look no more, Elga & HRTrainingClasses.com is for you. Elga and her team want you to succeed and the effort they put forth proves that true. I took Elga’s 8 week PHR/SPHR Exam Prep Webinar.

Elga provided me with her wealth of Human Resources knowledge along with online resources, a manual, flashcards and personal one-on-one sessions leading up to my exam which fully prepared me to pass my PHR Exam on the first attempt. I cannot express my gratitude enough to Elga and her team. Thank you so much Elga & Team! Tawnya Hall, PHR

There is no better teacher and coach of the HR Body of Knowledge than Elga. Elga has an unbelievable understanding of HR and how to apply it and teach it (she uses real life scenarios and provides the “why” behind laws and policies so that you comprehend and remember them). She is committed to ensuring that her clients and students truly understand this body of knowledge and have what it takes to pass their HR exams (PHR, SPHR) with flying colors. When you take a course from Elga, you are not just signing up for a course – you are signing up for a coach/mentor who will coach you outside of course hours and well after the course. With Elga, you will have a HR coach and mentor for life! Thank you so much Elga for coaching me and enabling me to pass my PHR with confidence!!!

I took Elga’s prep class the beginning of August. I took what I learned and the study materials she provided and studied for the next three months. I took my book and flashcards everywhere with me.

I have so much to say about Elga. Saying how knowledgeable she is in her field and how wonderful she is might be repetitive (which by the way she really is!) I want to share something more about her. Elga is a real mentor. The type of mentor that we read about in the books but if we are lucky enough we might find in real life. She not only helped me be more successful in all different areas of HR but she always was really there for me. She made sure that I stayed strong in this challenging journey to get my PHR certification. Her classes are the perfect balance of in depth learning and fun.
Elga, thank you truly

Melissa Evans, PHR

Elga 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 Elga’s 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 Elga 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. Elga 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 Elga, she is an amazing person!

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!

Amber Evaro PHR / SPHR Exam Prep Testimonial

Amber Evaro, PHR

I took my PHR Exam just 4 short days after I attended Elga’s Exam Prep Workshop and passed! Elga 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 Elga!! next stop, SPHR!

I recently attended Elga’s 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 would recommend Elga – she knows her stuff!
