Second Chance Policy

For the PHR SPHR Exam Prep classes, students can take the class twice and they do not need to pay for the second time around as long as it is within one year from their registration.  For example, the student registered in June 2017 for the Fall 2017 class.  They now want to take the Fall 2018 class. the retake time has expired.  They would have needed to take the Spring 2018 class to be eligible for the free retake.

I am very proud to declare, after what felt like endless studying and with the ongoing support, care and service from Train Me Today,  I passed my PHR® exam, March 7, 2018! My experience with Train Me Today has been wonderful from before I decided to purchase the course, to even after my course offering was over! Jacquelyn Thorp, owner of TMT, was very responsive to all my emails, questions, concerns about the course itself, unit material and she even helped me with my own self-doubt! Her level of service and commitment for her students’ success is what impressed me the most because I hold the same values as a HR professional.

The course is exactly how it is described on the website and the weekly meetings helped keep me accountable for reading the material and taking the test! I also took advantage of the recorded lectures which I listened to over and over, while walking the dog, doing the laundry, driving home from work, etc., not to mention you get a lot of practice test!

All in all, the relationships and knowledge that I have built by taking this course have been invaluable. I couldn’t have done it on my own.

I just wanted to let you both know that I took and passed the PHR® exam last Saturday, July 1.
Since I was not able to take the exam immediately after the Train me classes, the recorded lectures in moodle and the practice exams in HRCP and HRCI helped me remember what we all discussed in class.  Thank you both for all your help!!!

I passed my PHR® exam today and in large part due to the prep course I took through Train Me Today. I had an AMAZING experience with the program and absolutely loved going to my class every Wednesday in Pasadena. Pam was an exceptional instructor and I'm so grateful to her for her encouragement and help. I just wanted to send an email to say thanks for such a great program it really changes lives and makes a huge difference.

Blended Learning

The majority of our students work full time.  Our students are adult, non-traditional students taking this particular class for a career advancement or change. They have work/family responsibilities. 

Our approach to the Exam Prep program combines the traditional classroom with online learning. 

To meet the needs of all of our students, we have taken a blended learning approach.  Blended learning combines classroom learning with online learning, in which students can, in part, control the time, pace, and place of their learning. 

Blended courses (also known as hybrid or mixed-mode courses) are classes where the traditional face-to-face instruction is enhanced by web-based online learning.  

How does the class  work?

Whether you are preparing for the exam or answering day-to-day questions, the Human Resource Certification Preparation Program is the right answer.   The class covers the HR topics below:

Unit 1 - Business Management

             Leadership & Strategy

Unit 2 - Talent Planning and Acquisition

Unit 3 - Learning and Development

Unit 4 - Total Rewards 

Unit 5 - Employee and Labor Relations

             Employee Engagement

Upon payment of registration a class is formed. Students are shipped the Human Resources Certification Program (HRCP) - a set of 5 books, numerous online practice exams and flash cards. HRCP will email you a link to the online practice exams and a password to register. As soon as you receive your books, log on the website and register.  Take pre-assessment Comprehensive Practice Exam A. This will tell you where you are weak and where your strengths are before the class begins allowing you to know where you need to focus your studies. 

You will also receive a link, user i.d. and password to the HR Certification Moodle Classroom that includes PowerPoint presentations, more practice exams, a blog and other resources.

Before classes begin covering each unit, read the first half of Unit 1 and take Unit 1 practice exam A.  

Download the syllabus (study schedule) from the

In class discussion will include problem centered discussion,  terms & concepts drills, examples, interactive activities to enhance your learning, time to speak with the instructor and get clarification. Bring your questions to class.  If you have a question, surely other students will have the same question.  You may even write down a list of questions for the instructor to go over.
