Last summer, I knew I’d be changing jobs in the new year and wanted to pass all three exams (SPHR, GPHR, SHRM-SCP) since I had been putting it off due to all the traveling I was doing. I enrolled in HRTrainingClasses in August 2019 and committed to attending Elga’s classes on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings… I’d join from India, France, the Netherlands or wherever I was traveling because I loved Elga’s way of combining the Chapter terms along with real-life examples that I could identify with as a Senior HR leader. Elga’s classes aren’t “hard”, but you have to do your part by reading the material, attending/participating in all her classes and taking advantage of all the training materials available on her website. I passed both the SPHR and SHRM-CP exams in December 2019. Then I studied for the GPHR exam using 1) all the knowledge I had gained for the SPHR exam and then utilized HRCI study guides for GPHR-related terms. I passed the exam on February 14, 2020. Even though I was able to use my years of global HR experience for the GPHR exam, having taken Elga’s classes and passing the SPHR exam first aided me in passing the GPHR exam. By far, this is the best training I have received related to Human Resources in my 30-year HR career.
