Don't Just Take Our Word For It...

"I followed David's materials, suggestions, tests, games, etc. as suggested and committed to the level of studying necessary to understand and apply the material. I found the material to be right on target and covered more than 80% of the questions asked. I felt totally prepared and would not recommend sitting for the exam without this level of preparation. I also reviewed other sources of material and found them to not be very helpful as the material was not relevant to the actual test questions. David's materials were PERFECT."
Keith Norwood, GPHR – Manager, HR North America – Armacell, LLC

"It didn't take long for me to realize that the benefits of your program extend far beyond simply being ready for the test. The variety of learning methods – audio CDs, on-line sample tests and games, flash cards, and study manual – was a tremendous help in absorbing an overwhelming amount of information. I especially appreciate the test taking tips! And our classroom lectures not only prepared me for the exam, but truly got me engaged in all aspects of Human Resources. I'll miss the weekly opportunities to get your professional input and to discuss current HR topics with colleagues."
Laura Tomanelli, SPHR - Human Resources Generalist - Village of Pinehurst

"I cannot say enough about the comprehensive PHR prep course presented by Distinctive HR through CAI. David Siler's exceptionally prepared lectures and materials covered every base in my exam prep and increased my confidence ten-fold. The study materials, in addition to the classes, enabled an 'old' student, to successfully complete a very intimidating exam. I would highly recommend this course as the best preparation around!"
Nancy M. Rodgers, PHR – HR Manager - Rural Health Group, Inc.

"The class was excellent! The extensive study materials along with David Siler's knowledge and experience in the HR profession helped me focus my efforts in preparing for the broad range of topics on the SPHR exam."
John Maultsby, SPHR - HR Manager - Trinity Manufacturing, Inc.

"The PHR/SPHR Certification Class taught by David Siler, uses comprehensive tools (interactive lectures, manuals, flashcards, and cds) to help an adult student maximize learning in a logical way. Not only did the classes and materials assist in what to study, but also how to study and improve standardized test scores. There is no doubt that I am PHR certified as a result of taking this class."
Alicia M. Brown, PHR - College Recruiter - Lowe's Companies, Inc.

"CAI's PHR/SPHR preparation class was invaluable in helping me prepare for and pass the SPHR exam. Instructor David Siler has broad knowledge of and experience in the HR field and does an excellent job of presenting the exam content in a relaxed classroom environment."
Julie Bennett, SPHR – Compensation and Benefits Manager – International Textile Group
