Keena was in search of Society for Human Resources Management Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) preparation after 12 years of leading a successful career with a Florida based restaurant franchise company. HCC has helped thousands of human resources professionals from a variety of industries prepare for SHRM certification for more than 10 years and it turned out to be an ideal opportunity for Keena after she moved back to Maryland. Keena was able to “gain an edge through concrete examples provided by the instructor in addition to learning from other HR professionals work experiences” before passing the certification exam on the first try.
“I couldn’t have gotten what I did from the course solely from the book,” she says. “The book allowed me to read definitions but the real-world element came from talking with other people as the instructor fostered those conversations.”
The most beneficial part of the course for Keena was what she learned from other human resources professionals across industries who were also preparing for certification. “Health care was largely represented in the class, but there were so many other areas included as well including government contracting. This made it interesting and the instructor was phenomenal with drilling down into the human piece of human resources while giving you the overview you need to take away for the core competencies addressed on the exam.”
