Thinking about joining the Big Bend SHRM study group? Here is what a recent participant had to say:

 The new SHRM Learning System more than prepared me to take the new SHRM-SCP test. The practice test and timed examinations were key in my preparation.  I also really enjoyed learning from my colleagues in the Big Bend SHRM certification class and recommend all these sources for success.   -Colene Rogers, SHRM – SCP
