I took the 10-week exam prep course and passed the PHR exam today! Elga is enormously knowledgeable in HR and very thorough in her presentations. She provides you with many resources to assist in your learning of the material. The exam was not easy and I feel that her course was essential to my success in passing. Money well spent!

I attended the live FMLA/ADA/PDA 2-day session remotely. It was great!! Elga is not only super knowledgeable in the FMLA/ADA/PDA information, but is also open to being a resource after the session is over. This approach shows she cares & goes above & beyond, and is passionate about her service. Wonderful experience all around & highly recommended!!

Where do I begin! I came to Elga in a panic after registering for the aPHR exam and realizing I had to schedule my exam in 120 days or I would have to pay extra fees. This was the best decision I ever made! I have zero experience in HR and in only 3 months I was able to pass my aPHR. The material can seem overwhelming but Elga explains everything in a way that you can actually comprehend the material not just memorize. If you are preparing to take any HRCI or SHRM exams and do not sign up with Elga you are doing yourself a huge disservice! Thank you, Elga for instilling confidence in me to go for my goals.

I just completed the 2-day FMLA/ADA/PDA certificate course with Elga in St. Louis, MO. I originally went into this class thinking that it would be very dry and that I would have a difficult time staying attentive. Wow, was I wrong! Not only did I come out of this class with a wealth of knowledge on FMLA/ADA/PDA, I also have the confidence to manage those difficult situations we all face from time to time. There was never a dull moment in this 2-day course and Elga is incredibly knowledgeable on the subject. It is obvious that she has a passion for teaching and I highly recommend her courses as I am certain I will attend more!

Cortney Bean FMLA, ADA and PDA Certificate Program Testimonial

Elga has an insurmountable gift of teaching. I have recently completed the FMLA/ADA Certificate Program and I can honestly say that those 2 days were not only informative, but they were fun as well. Im now taking the aPHR classes and I am learning more than I ever imagined I could. Elga also mentored me at a previous job and I am now a (Self-proclaimed) Workers Compensation expert. She took the time because she genuinely cares about people. I believe that’s why she’s so good at her profession. If you need continuing education or if you are just looking to expand your knowledge Elga is absolutely the one you should choose!

Stacy Davis - 2-Day FMLA, ADA and PDA Certificate Program Testimonial

This week I participated in a 2-day webinar on FMLA, ADA and PDA. This is not something I was looking forward to, as most of these are very basic and I seldom feel like I am learning anything new. Elga made this not only tolerable to listen to for 2 full days, she is extremely knowledgeable as well as helpful and eager to research anything she is not sure about. I do believe this was money well spent in training and would be open to more training with Elga. Thank you so much for your time Elga.

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.

Today I passed the SPHR on my first attempt!! I can not recommend Elga and her training program enough. Elga provided comprehensive training to ensure that her students fully understand all aspects of HR in order to pass the test – and to apply these tools to be better in our everyday jobs as HR professionals. With a full-time job and as a mother of two, the evening online courses provided me with the flexibility I needed. Elga is extremely dedicated to her students’ success and provided personalized one-on-one sessions to ensure I was ready, and confident to pass the test on my first attempt.

Between her training webinars and the Friday night study sessions, if you commit your time to studying and reviewing her material, I believe you have all the tools you need to successfully pass the exam. She will give you tips and tricks and ways to remember information that comes in handy when you’re sitting in the exam room. If you want a surefire aide to passing the exam, sign up with Elga and commit to studying. It is worth every penny and then some!

Dennis Himes, SHRM-CP

I had an opportunity to attend one of Elga Lejarza-Penn Employment Laws certification programs. Going into the program, you are never sure what to expect. I have to say; this was one of the best programs I have attended. The class consisted of about six individuals, it was through a webex/skype type meeting, and you had to participate. This interaction with the instructor and other attendees made the two-day program feel as though I gathered more, got my questions answered, and was able to here other questions from attendees I wouldn’t have thought about. Elga is extremely knowledgeable in her field and provided so much insight into the various laws: ADA, FMLA, FLSA, ADEA, Etc. I am now able to bring this knowledge into my everyday work environment and share this with my colleagues. If you are looking for a great program, I would highly recommend going through training with Elga.

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!

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!

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!

I met Elga on Linkedin when I was anticipating taking HR certification. I was particularly impressed by some of the very genuine recommendations she had on Linkedin.  Being a recruiter I had very limited HR Domain knowledge. Elga helped me to master the concepts. She has a brilliant way to make her students understand the concepts, whether they are laws , benefits administration or business strategy principles. Her breadth of experience in HR and teaching them for so long, gave me the edge on what to expect in the exam and master the more important topics. Anyone who is seriously considering to take up any HR Certifications should get in touch with her and won’t be disappointed.

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.

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.

I took Elga’s 5 day prep course for the SHRM exam in mid December 2018. I felt it was especially helpful to drill down in the specifics of union regulations and laws that were unfamiliar to me while also revisiting general employment law as a refresher among other topics. I also appreciated her insight into how the exam was structured and some tips on how to successfully anticipate the exam’s approach to evaluating knowledge. Elga’s training style also helps a participant remember the material because she interlaces humorous stories from her HR experience and provides memory cues, that combined with repetition, was helpful to me. She has an amazing energy level and she exhibits care for participant learning and mastery. I give her credit for helping me thoroughly prepare for (and helping me pass) my exam utilizing her study materials and classroom instruction. I highly recommend her to you if this is your objective.

Just a few days after wrapping up Elga’s on-line course, I passed my SHRM-SCP on the first try and 5 days later, I also passed my SPHR on the first try! I cannot thank Elga enough for her support and guidance. I learned so much from her on-line classes but in addition, she also spent several hours on one-on-one sessions with me in order to ensure my success. I’m very grateful for her dedication and again would highly recommend her courses for anyone seeking a professional certification in HR!

Today I passed my SHRM-SCP certification on my first try. I have been taking Elga’s on-line courses for the last 10 weeks and she did an amazing job of preparing me for the exam. Her classes have been engaging and filled in all the blanks I needed to know to pass the exam. I highly recommend her courses for anyone seeking a professional certification in HR!

Today I passed the SPHR certification exam on the FIRST time to take the exam. I could not have done this without Elga’s workshop, instructions, and continual care that she gives each one of her students.

Thank you so much Elga!!!! You are the best!

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 attended Elga’s PHR/SPHR workshop in DC this past August 2018. She is not only extremely thorough in helping her students prepare for this certification exam, but she goes above and beyond to ensure you are prepared. She was personally invested in my success, providing me with video recordings, practice exams and even taking time out of her busy day to prep me by phone. I would recommend Elga 1000 times over to ANYONE interested in obtaining their HR certification or attending any of her other training offerings in the field. Outside of the course and preparation for my exam, I have found Elga to be an incredible mentor in the HR industry. Aside from her insane expertise, she is a captivating story-teller. Her path to success one I’ll take with me and I plan to stay in touch with Elga on her journey, both professionally and personally.

Thank you, Elga, for being my instructor, cheerleader, supporter and (hopefully) forever mentor!

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. It all paid off! November 1 I took my certification test and passed on my first try. I credit that to Elga! Thank you so much for your passion for HR and your dedication to helping HR professionals, like me, earn their Certification. Please excuse me while I go change my name and add my PHR credentials!!! 🙌🏼🙌🏼

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

How fortunate am I to be married to the best HR Instructor in the industry?!?!  I’m just an ‘IT Guy’ but after sitting through some of the PHR and SPHR Workshops I’ve become an expert in HR!  I took the aPHR Exam and passed with ease and high scores.  I can tell you that everything that Elga teaches and the way that she teaches it is way more effective and far above and beyond ANYTHING I’ve seen from the competition.  Not only that, the care and attention that she gives each and every participant to make sure they have the knowledge and skills to pass their exam(s) is far above and beyond any instructor in any industry that I’ve ever seen!  Thank you Elga for being such a great instructor, mentor and role model not only for the HR Professionals but for all people.

If you have attempted the PHR and/or SPHR and did not pass, you know that painful feeling—the one that knocks you down and basically paralyzes you with fear of failing again—I experienced that in 2015. I finally decided to try again so I attended Elga’s 5-day workshop in Nashville in March 2018. I could tell very quickly that Elga knew the material, was invested in seeing all participants pass and was committed to boosting our confidence. Elga achieved this by explaining the concepts behind the material and by providing great test taking tips. After the workshop, I submitted my SPHR application. However, I waited until September 2018 to test because I was still scared. A week before my test date, I reviewed all the materials that Elga provided during class and it was as though I could hear Elga right there reviewing the material, giving the tips and cheering me on. Not only did I pass, but I received very high marks on each area. I remember thinking during my test, “this is easy,” and “this wasn’t like the last time.” I believe that Elga’s training and support played a huge role in what I was feeling and why I passed. So, if you’ve taken either test and did not pass—connect with Elga. If you haven’t taken either test and want to pass–connect with Elga. Thanks, Elga!

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!

David Guess PHR / SPHR Exam Prep Testimonial

Rarely would one find a formal written endorsement from me regarding testimonials. I try and only do this when I feel the person is clearly above and beyond in their professionalism and ability to influence others through their leadership.

One such person, Elga Lejarza of Lejarza HR Consulting is a person of influence in the field of human resources. In May of 2017, I attended the SPHR preparatory course led by Elga. I routinely refer to this course as a “Total Emersion Course.”

The course is designed with one primary goal: to successfully navigate and pass the rigorous SPHR exam. You will not have a single wasted moment with Elga, every minute of her workshops is spent with you, the client, and your success. Upon completion of this “emersion experience,” I sat for the SPHR exam in Lexington, KY. one week later. Result: PASS! It is with great pleasure and deserved distinction that I personally recommend Lejarza HR Consulting.

In my opinion, Elga has no competition at her level; there are just other people teaching PHR/SPHR courses.

Thank you, Elga. You represent our profession in a mighty way.

I highly recommend Elga’s PHR/SPHR course to all HR professionals aspiring to achieve their certifications. Elga’s passion for HR and her ability to relate study material topics to real world HR situations was instrumental in my preparation for the SPHR exam. She has helpful and mindful tips and learning tricks to help students grasp and retain the information presented in her seminar. Because of Elga’s effective teaching methods I was able to pass the SPHR exam (my first attempt) 3 days after completing her course. Thank you, Elga!

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!

I took Elga’s PHR/SPHR course in October 2017 and it was incredible! Not only did I learn a ton, but I felt really confident in taking the SPHR exam after the course. I am usually not a good test taker, but Elga is a wonderful instructor and so knowledgeable in the HR world that she really helped calm my nerves. She will help you in any way that she can and can answer any question. She gives you great tips on what to watch for in the exam, what material will most likely be on the exam that you should focus on, and a TON of study materials to use and review after the course. I had a wonderful experience and I really and truly think anyone who is going for their PHR or SPHR should spend the time and money and take Elga’s course. You will not regret it! I am also happy to say that I passed the SPHR exam in November 2017! THANK YOU ELGA!!!

Elga, I just took the PHR exam and passed!!! I attended your workshop in Nashville at the end of August and finally felt confident enough to take the exam. 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!

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!
