Christina was an incredible resource; a highly-skilled, engaging, and thoughtful instructor. Her comprehensive approach to the SHRM body of knowledge was a critical component of why I successfully passed the exam. Online education is very difficult to effectively manage but Christina did an amazing job in ensuring all students were able to actively participate and get the most out of each session. She was also incredibly responsive to questions before and after each session - just as accessible as an in-person instructor. I highly recommend HR Jetpack and Christina, the class far exceeded my expectations. Erin V, SHRM-CP, San Francisco, CA
The course was really focused on HR best practices and no matter how long you have been working in the HR you can’t be an expert in every area. This course helped me fill in the knowledge gaps and strengthened what I already practice. Dennis is a great example of what an HR professional looks like. He is so passionate about what he does and truly wants everyone who takes he program to pass their respective exams. Follow his guidance, practice test taking as much as possible and put the extra time into studying and you will pass!! Veronika S, SHRM-CP, California

Not only did Christina Danforth the instructor teach the class online, she also created a study group on social media in order to promote continuity and reinforce the commitment that it takes to prepare for the exam. On the study group social media page, Christina sends flashcard statements or definitions to get responses for the correct term. She also provided multiple-choice questions. This was a helpful mechanism for me to continue studying.
