Student Review

Kimberly Botti, SHRM Certification Online Prep Course Attendee

"Rutgers virtual SHRM Certification Prep Course was the best class I have ever taken. I feel much more prepared to take the SHRM-SCP exam. The professor, Eve, was the most supportive professor I have ever had. She provided real-world everyday examples of HR practice that the entire class could relate to. I will carry the lessons learned in this course throughout my entire HR career."
