A Few of Our
"Just wanted to say a word of thanks. I’m grateful I stumbled upon Tools 2 Succeed earlier this year. Although I procrastinated until the very end, I was able to obtain the majority (57) of my credits thru Tools 2 Succeed and have recertified successfully (took six days for them to approve, versus the six weeks I was expecting!). I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect, but I gained insight and knowledge through the courses, even those specifically in my specialty (talent acquisition and management)." -- Jennifer Fry, PHR, Recruiter, TalentFusion
"Sheryl, I just received my approved recertification e-mail. I want to thank you for all of your assistance. The Tools 2 Succeed program is amazing and very user friendly! I have recommended it to many of my peers across the country. It truly made a difference in my recertification experience. Thank you!" -- Lisa McClain, PHR, Human Resources Practitioner
"I wanted to let you know what an
awesome program you have for
recertification. I made it through
and received my recertification -
would not have made it without your
program." -- Linda Hammontree,
SPHR, Human Resources Director,
"I wanted to let you know that I recently completed my chosen courses from the HRCI Recertification package that I purchased. I have received my review and approval from HRCI and will receive my new certificate in the next few weeks. I want to say that this cost effective packet was ideal for my needs. It reinforced skills and learning that are valuable for me and my assistant (who benefits from me), and I would not hesitate to purchase another packet for my next recertification cycle." --Georgette Thomas, PHR, Human Resources Manager, School of Visual Arts
"I recently recertified my PHR, and
the only source that I used was the
easy-to-follow HRCI Recertification
e-Learning Package. I would highly
recommend this program for anyone
planning on recertifying. I
accumulated all of my 60 credits
from here in a short time of 6
weeks. I had a ton of questions
about recertifying, and I was
fortunate to have come across Sheryl
Tuchman who patiently answered all
my questions. I have never seen
someone as prompt as her. " -- Saba
"Tools 2 Succeed was the best way to
accumulate re-certification credits
that I've experienced since
obtaining my SPHR certification in
1997. I've sung your praises loudly
to all I know in my HR Department."
-- Calvin Patton, SPHR, Associate
"Sheryl, I wanted to take a moment to tell you
how amazing your online courses are.
Although I registered to obtain
additional credits for my SPHR
recertification, to my amazement, I
am learning critical skills and
thought processes for my job.
Great value! Thank you!"
-- Karen Golden, SPHR, Regional
Human Resources Manager, La-z-Boy
"This group of on-line courses is by
far the most time-effective and
cost-effective means for me to
achieve my SPHR recertification. I
will use these courses every time I
need credits for my future
recertification years. Thanks for
creating these great online tools!"
John Bautch, MA, SPHR, OnPoint Contractor serving
with Army ROTC, University of
you for making this great e-learning
set available. I completed the
credits necessary for SPHR
recertification in 2 months. It was
not difficult; I just set easy goals
and worked on it steadily, as I had
free time. Completing the 60
hours was organized and easy because
this software keeps track of
everything, including where you are
in the middle of a particular
course. This was so much
easier than retesting! There
are even courses left that I can
apply to the next recertification
cycle, so it was economical too."
--Julie Garro, SPHR
wanted to drop a note to say 'thank
you'. I just received my
approval from HRCI of my SPHR
recertification. Your courses made it much
more convenient - - and affordable!
- - to get my strategic credits. I also appreciated the fact
that the courses were challenging,
well-constructed and enriching. Please continue to offer
these, and if possible, expand the
selection. Great job - thanks again!
" --Maureen A.
McCormick, SPHR, HR Director, Mellon
"I just learned that my
HRCI recertification was approved. What a relief!
Your online courses were instrumental in making that
happen. I appreciate that there are so many subjects
to choose from. They were all well-structured,
informative and easy to follow. For me, and I'm sure
for anyone else who works 40+ hours per week, the
best thing about the courses is that I didn't have
to miss work and was able to complete them on my own
schedule. Tools 2 Succeed gets my highest
recommendation!" --Donna Stark, SPHR,
Director of HR, Fusion Solutions, Inc.
"I just wanted to take a moment to say
how pleased I was to be able to
recertify my SPHR with HRCI by utilizing
the Tools 2 Succeed modules. I
really think your program is the best
value for recertification and saves the
time and expense of having to go to
numerous seminars or workshops in order
to satisfy the requirements for
recertification. And it can be
done from the surroundings of home or
office. I received my notification
today that my recertification
application was approved by HRCI, so I
wanted to say 'thank you'. I look
forward to using your program again."
--Roger Walter, SPHR,
Director HR, Baker Botts,
"The e-Learning programs were
very easy to use, affordable, and included current and
relevant information. I would highly recommend this
program to anyone who wants a convenient way to obtain

"With the Tools 2 Succeed e-Learning, I
was able to earn my CEU's for
recertification! The courses were
self-paced and packed with informative
learning. I am definitely going to
use this system again to recertify!
Susan M. Folscroft, PHR
was thrilled to be able to use the Tools
2 Succeed e-Learning package to
recertify my PHR. Sheryl was wonderful to work with when I
needed assistance, and I was able to so
conveniently and easily work on my
e-Learning hours whenever I wanted to on
my laptop at home or in the office.
I had no problem whatsoever in getting
recertified, and half my credits came
from Tools 2 Succeed. I believe this is the
most cost-effective and user-friendly
way to recertify." -- Suzanne Nelson, PHR, Los Angeles
"My HRCI Recertification was the best
adult style learning experience I have
ever had. The website is user friendly
and the modules were clear and concise.
Truly a valuable learning experience
that I can use in my role as an HR
Professional in so many ways! Thank you,
Tools 2 Succeed! --Lorei, PHR, New Jersey
The e-Learning programs were very easy
to use, informative and affordable. Due
to time limitations, I had to renew my
PHR recertification in a month and a
half, and this was the only online
program that allowed me to do so. I am
also using it again to renew for the
following three years. It is user-friendly and can be completed at your
own pace. I just would like to thank
Sheryl Tuchman for her cooperation,
professionalism and for taking the time
to walk me through the program. I would
highly recommend this program!" --Suzie Elmankabadi, PHR, NYA
