I wanted to reach out and let you know that I PASSED the SHRM-CP exam. It was definitely a process, but I am so grateful for the opportunity to complete the prep course online as I would not have been able to make the drive to St. Cloud and there was not an option for a course in my area.
Collette is an absolutely wonderful instructor. I felt more prepared because of the instruction and the course. During the test I kept reminding myself of the advice Collette gave for test taking.
