Testimonials

The class was wonderful and am excited to report that I passed the SHRM-CP exam on 5/24.  I appreciated all the help I got from our instructor (Lorrie) and do enjoy the online format as it gives much needed flexibility that comes with working full time.  

-Maggie, Spring 2019

Lorrie is a consummate professional by the definition itself. I first had the privilege of being a student of Lorrie’s for the prep class. At first listen you quickly realize that Lorrie is extremely knowledgeable in all function areas of the HR profession. Her work ethic is also unprecedented; she never stops. Lorrie is highly experienced in providing global partnering and support outside of the U.S. as well. Her combination of skill sets would make her a true asset to any organization. Lorrie is an HR professional that most aspire to be. Any organization would benefit by employing Lorrie.

— George, former student

If you want to pass the exam on your first try I would recommend taking the test prep class from Lorrie. Her students have something like a 90% pass rate. So if you are serious about your professional certification and you are willing to put in the time and effort Lorrie is your best bet.

—Michael, former student

Lorrie sincerely enjoys teaching and it is reflected in her work. I received nothing but praises from her students as an instructor and a mentor. She was organized, detailed, and relevant in her course teachings. She pushed her students to excel while giving them the necessary resources to succeed. I would recommend Lorrie as a professor and trainer anytime.
