Student feedback
  • Finally passed the exam and <got> the magic word PASS!!!)
    It's been 3 days now, but I still can't believe I did it))
    About the exam: A week before the exam, I started to feel like I didn't know anything and I forgot everything I knew... The day of the exam in general was a horror for me. I was worried sick, couldn't study or concentrate. I decided to go to the exam centre beforehand and sit there)) . The exam started. After a few questions I started to think that I definitely will not pass and there was even a moment, honestly, when I thought it was better to leave and go out (do not do that under any circumstances). It's just that the exam, like Michael says, is not about specific knowledge, but about reasoning. So, if at first glance it seems that it doesn't look like what you passed, then don't worry.

    Good luck to everyone who is going to pass!!!!

    Thank you very much Michael and everyone who has shared their experiences (it helps).
  • Hooray! I passed the exam!!!!
    To say that it was hard for me to prepare is nothing to say.... what is called a complete information overload...
    Huge thanks to Mike Pritula for "chewing up" the material and helping me to prepare for the exam.
    Thanks to my husband for supporting me and giving me so much time for self-development! 💕
    Well, and of course, with these talismans from the kids, I just had to pass the exam😊
    P.S. If you dare to take this adventure - go for it! Everything is possible with systematic preparation! At least, prevention of Alzheimer's is guaranteed😉
  • Today is the hour X that I've been putting off for a long time😅, I finally passed the Exam, Hooraaaah!!!!
    A month of sleepless nights, sleeping in the arms of a Notebook 🙂
    Satisfaction complete, without preparation it must have been hard to pass, thanks Mike Pritula for your expertise 🙏

    Another DONE in my CHECK LIST
  • Colleagues, hello!
    I took the SPHRi last week and I want to share my experience.
    It was a successful strategy for me to answer all the questions I knew exactly, and then go back to the ones I had doubts about. There's about 40 minutes left on those.
    If anyone is interested in the details, please email me and I'll tell you.
    Have a great week and success everyone!
  • Friends, fellow certifiers, hello everyone!
    Passed the exam today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
    Of course, I'm happy!
    About the preparation:
    I decided for myself straight away - I'm going to trust Mike. Yeah, I've got loads of preparation material too, there's this huge, scary book....... But. I'm an entrepreneur. I have two businesses of my own. I really don't have time to study the opuses. Anyway, in the last 4 days before the exam, I've watched the course video 4 times. Tests passed 2-3 times (depending on the difficulty: the ones that were very easy for me, passed 2 times). But in those 4 days I did not think about anything else except certification. I mean, it is very important to focus, to put all my energy there.
    My conclusions:
    - prepare - necessarily, but not by the super-book, take the tests (at least a million times, the main thing is to "catch" this American....... approach)
    - trust yourself - you know everything and know how, there is no secret knowledge
    - consider victory on the shore - I had a very clear idea before the test how I would drink the champagne for the successful passing of the exam
    - gain experience - yes, experienced HR people are "doomed" to success
    Hugs to everyone and best wishes for passing the exam! It's a super high!
  • I passed the exam, hooraaaaaah!!! I am insanely happy about it as I managed to get into the hr spirit in the model that the course and exam demanded.
    I had long doubted whether to take the PHRI at all, as I am a newly minted HRD and can't boast of years of experience yet... In my company, no one wanted me to have a PHRI, it was my personal challenge and must have).
    The course was not given to me immediately to talk about a deep understanding...and the eternal business, work, family, sports... it was hard to devote the time I needed to study... I took the tests on time, but I didn't go into them faithfully...)))
    And then I decided that I needed that result; I was also inspired by Michael's advice: "of course, pass, you'll get it!
    I registered, paid for the exam, and chose the date of 29 April.
    Many thanks to Michael.
    Mike, you are, among other things, an inspiration to people, you are real! Thank you very much!
    By the way right now I am getting high on the HR-Director course, which is also led by Mikhail) then I will definitely be a business partner)
    Sorry, I've written a lot, but I couldn't help writing) good luck to everyone!
  • For me, this course was useful to learn a lot about international HR practice. To understand what differences there are between the principles of HR management in Russia and abroad. I learned a lot about recruiting, selection and assessment. I have understood that I have to improve my professional English. The lecture notes are very useful in the training process and for using them at the workplace.
    The only pity was that due to the time difference I couldn't take part in the lessons online, I had to watch them in recordings.
