I needed to obtain my SHRM certification as a requirement of my job. After taking this class, I am amazed at how much I have learned and incorporated into my daily work responsibilities. I’ve noticed a difference in my confidence and abilities to take on work and contribute my new knowledge with co-workers on topics I knew nothing about prior to Elga’s training.
She is dedicated and passionate about what she does and wants you to be successful. She is with you every step of the way. She makes herself available whenever needed, even if that means a pep talk five minutes before your exam. You won’t get that one on one attention anywhere else.
Thank you Elga for your dedication in what you do and for helping me realize the confidence I had all along and for helping me pass the SHRM-CP on the first try.

Elga is an expert in all things HR. Because of her training, knowledge, and unmatched dedication to her clients, I’ve been able to pass 3 HR certifications within just a few months, and all 3 on the first attempts. None of that would have been possible without Elga’s process, training style, and support. She’s truly passionate about her profession and cares about her clients. I will continue recommending her and her programs for years to come. Thank you, Elga!!

When you think of an instructor you immediately think of someone who is knowledgeable, motivated and passionate about their area of expertise. Those traits exemplify Elga but there is she is so much more to her. Her clear goal is the success of her students. She carves time out of her personal schedule outside of expected class to create opportunities for everyone to review material and share knowledge. She makes it a point to know each of her participants on a personal basis. She cares. My personal experience shows just how valuable Elga was to my success. I completed the course and the week prior to my exam I was feeling confident but nervous so we scheduled a 1-on-1 call to review. After noticing I was tripping up on some concepts, Elga scheduled an two additional sessions to clear up any confusion I had. These touch points were not planned in her busy schedule but she carved out the time to ensure my success. I genuinely feel that Elga was the secret sauce to my success and am thrilled I had her not only an instructor but as a coach. When you join her classes you get more than what you pay for!

I highly recommend HR Training Classes for your HR certification prep course! Elga’s courses and study groups helped me to not only learn the material but also apply it. I was able to study from the comfort of my home and learn all that I needed to know to successfully pass my SHRM-CP!

Thank you are small words compared to the extent of dedication you have for each of your students ELGA ( Erudite-Learned-Gifted and last but not the least truly AMAZING ) ! Your conviction in me helped me pass the SHRM-CP exam in the first go. Listening to you has re-kindled my love with Human Resources and I plan to continue learning more in this field and aspire to make a niche’ for myself. You are an inspiring motivator and I love your teaching style with live examples from the industry and inputs from all your students – it makes your sessions so interesting! The one-on-one sessions with you helped me a lot and so did the study sessions and recordings.

I have been celebrating all weekend because Elga and her team have made it possible for me to take and pass the SHRM-CP exam! I cannot give enough kudos to Elga and her wonderful team as they truly go above and beyond making sure to give you the resources and knowledge to become a Human Resource expert. Elga strives to get to know each and everyone of her students academically and personally. She identifies quickly your strengths and your weak points, and assists you EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. Her compassion, vitality, experience and knowledge is second to none, which in turn makes you immediately comfortable learning from her and the material. Elga cuts out the fluff and focuses on the meat of the material, so you can also focus on what is important. THIS PROGRAM IS WORTH EVERY PENNY and more! I cannot thank Elga and her team enough. This SHRM journey has been a wonderful experience, and I cannot wait to join Elga again when I am ready to take the next step in my Human Resources career.

Many agree that results speak for themselves. That being said, without any previous studying or preparation (other than work), I took HR Training Classes’ SHRM-CP/PHR Bootcamp for a week and immediately passed both the SHRM-CP and PHR the very next week. Elga breaks the content areas down in ways that stick with you conceptually and make them easy to understand and apply. She has a genuine, personal interest in each of her student’s success (I think she was more excited than me when I passed!). Her personality keeps the class engaged and she is so grounded. In class I felt like I was working with a coach and not listening to a lecturer. She is a natural mentor and when engaging with her it feels like we’ve known each other for years. Beyond the intensive programming, your initial class fee also grants you access to a wide variety of live-recorded study sessions and e-materials that supplement the class learnings toward your goals. I would highly recommend the HR Training Classes team and curriculum.

I met Elga just one week prior to sitting for the SHRM-CP, and passed on my first try!!! She was like a skilled marksman when it came to assessing my weaknesses. With precision, she filled in the “gaps,” provided clarity and calibrated my focus with pinpoint accuracy. Elga is patient, and caring. Most of all, she is knowledgeable, competent, and won’t let you give up on yourself. Just when I thought I had failed miserably, I could hear Elga’s voice saying, “You’re halfway there. You got this. You can do it!” She was right! Thanks Elga!

I would highly recommend going through HR Training Classes and Elga to prepare for your HR Certification! Elga goes above and beyond to make sure you are ready for your exam. She meets with her students one on one and runs weekly study groups to help supplement and review the course materials. In addition to teaching you the necessary topics and skills she also helps give you the confidence boost needed to pass your exam. I wouldn’t have passed my SHRM-CP exam without Elga!

I trusted Elga’s expertise to prepare me for taking and passing the PHR & SHRM-CP and I was the best decision I could have made. Elga is an expert in all things HR. She makes the content interesting, clear, and relatable. The epitome of the ultimate mentor, her encouragement to pursue the next level of certifications is inspiring! Thank you for all you do Elga!

Michele Eliopoulos, PHR, SHRM-CP

Elga and her team are AMAZING!!! Her classes are virtual, everything is recorded, you can watch everything over and over. She’s so passionate!! She, Mike and Henry always go the extra mile to ensure that you personally receive as much one-on-one time or class materials you need. I could have not passed either my PHR, and my SHRM-CP without her. She teaches your techniques for both exams which are really beneficial. I cannot thank her enough!!! Thank you for all of your hard work!!

When I committed to the online evening classes and to taking the SHRM-CP test I had no idea it would take so much time and energy but it was worth it. Elga and her team go above and beyond to provide the support needed to be successful in these classes. Some of the material that I learned were things I do every day at my job, but so much was new and unfamiliar to me. Elga is very energetic, enthusiastic and keeps you engaged in every class. She helps give pointers, tips and stories on fun ways to remember and learn the new material. I am so excited to have had this opportunity to take this test but most importantly to have had such a great instructor who has been by my side the entire time coaching and encouraging me every step of the way….Elga Lejarza Penn…you are the best!

Carol Crawford, SHRM-CP, PHR

Today I passed the HRCI-PHR on my first attempt!! When I started classes with Elga in January, my intentions were to get my SHRM-CP…. which I did two weeks ago. With Elga’s training material, her commitment and dedication to her participants and her phenomenal breadth of HR knowledge that she so passionately shares, I was successful with my HRCI-PHR test. I would highly encourage anyone who is looking for a class that offers study groups, online class lectures, and personalized one-on-one sessions to get connected with HRTrainingClasses.com. This group of people are committed to helping others achieve great results and Elga and her team will continue to support you until you do.

I cannot speak highly enough of how effective Elga’s class and training methods were for me. After success in achieving my PHR, I felt confident through the use of tools provided by Elga and personal diligence in applying my knowledge that I could attain my SHRM-CP. And to do this a month later is a testament of how connected Elga and her team are to those she trains. Join the HRtrainingclasses family and Elga for a rewarding experience you don’t want to miss out on!

Elga’s dedication and commitment to her student’s success is beyond measure! The entire team at HRTrainingClasses.com was always available and helpful. The classes were thorough and training materials were perfect for all learning styles. I passed on my first attempt, thanks Elga!

Mike Penn, aPHR, PHR, SPHR, SHRM-CP

Update:  As of March 21st I’ve passed my SPHR too!

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!!!

Jordan Phillips, SHRM-CP

Elga took the time on a Friday evening to call me right before my SHRM-CP exam. Several of the items that we discussed at a high level were on my exam. I can only imagine had I reached out sooner how much more prepared I would have been. Not only did we cover material, but she gave me a confidence boost that I needed to hear. Would recommend reaching out to Elga to discuss your future plans for certifications. Thank you Elga.

Diana Darty, SHRM-CP, SPHR

Elga, I cannot thank you and your team enough for the magnanimous manner in which you supported my success on both the SPHR and the SHRM-CP. The materials were delivered quite proficiently. I was impressed with the registration process, materials, and follow-up from start to finish. I would also like to reiterate the importance of the one-on-one sessions. The personalized coaching is unheard of in most industries. Your passion, knowledge and follow through were greatly appreciated. Although, I am a veteran HR professional, your “associations” and the manner in which you presented the materials resonated with me throughout the testing process. Appreciatively, Diana Darty, Director of Support Services, UTLA

Diana Darty, SHRM-CP

Elga, I want to thank you once again for the fantastic preparatory course that assisted me with successfully passing the SHRM-CP examination today. Your workshop materials, coursework, one-on-one sessions, skills, knowledge and expertise were noteworthy contributions to my success! Kudos to you and your entire team! Diana Darty, Director of Support Services, UTLA

Coleen Stelter, SHRM-CP

I took Elga’s 5 day SHPR/PHR Certification prep class in March 2016. Elga is extremely knowledgeable and communicates very well – her method of teaching isn’t just reading she give examples from her vast experience which makes learning so much easier if you can apply to a real life situation. Her passion for the field of HR is addicting. I would highly recommend this class to anyone pursuing their SPHR/PHR Certificate. Everything you need to pass is in this class – and with such a great teacher you can’t fail! I took the test May 16, 2016 and passed! THANK YOU ELGA!
