SHRM Senior Certified Instructor
Dear Mike and Fellow classmates, It has been a pleasure being with all of you. I am one of the quiet ones in the class. However , I found the last 3 days to be very rewarding and meaningful to my growth as a HR professional. Mike you are amazing and I wish all of you success on your test. Mike your joy for teaching is infectious . I pray you continue to use your gift of teaching to help others. My test is in June 2021 for SHRM -SCP . I was proud that I knew a lot of the answers. However, I now know what I need to focus on moving forward because of you Mike.
-Thank You! - the quiet one Pamela
I just wanted to take the time and THANK YOU for the class.
I attended your 3-Day Jan 27-29 and I can honestly say that there is no way I would have passed my exam without you!
I was able to pass my SCP this past Thursday and it was because of having the ability to go back and rewatch and listen to your class. You were an exceptional facilitator and I am very grateful.

I attended the Online SHRM class from 1/27-29 and passed the CP exam earlier this week.
Although I oversee a number of Full and Part time staff through various roles, coming from a soccer background, the HR world is somewhat alien to me. The Executive Director and HR Director at work had suggested I take the certification to meet a developmental need and as part of a longer term succession plan. I came in to this learning process very green with eyes wide open.
A large component of my role is Adult Education, and I enjoyed observing your interactions with the group and was impressed by the candor and connectivity you were able to sustain without the use of video.
Although it’s unlikely I’ll ever be employed in corporate HR, I took a lot from the course and your teaching, particularly with regard to the rationale and process for ethical decision making.
Thank you for the class, I enjoyed the experience and opportunity and you are very good at what you do!
Many Thanks and have a great weekend!

"Mike, I took an online SHRM Certification prep class from you last fall and wanted to take a moment to thank you for all your insight & assistance in preparing for the exam. In December 2019, I passed the SHRM-CP exam on the first attempt. Since that went so well, I decided to sit for the SHRM-SCP exam in July this year. I was able to pass that on my first attempt as well. I am very excited & proud of these accomplishments. I really appreciate your online training and feel that it was definitely a major factor in my success."
Thanks again! - Michelle K
"I wanted to let you know that I took my SHRM-CP exam today (first try!) and I PASSED! Thank you so much for the great course earlier in December - it was a pleasure and I'm grateful that I was able to attend. I seriously could not have passed this exam without your energizing and FUN prep class. Thanks again!"

"Mike...I was a student in your SHRM-CP online test prep class that started mid-September. I sat for my exam on January 29th and passed. I wanted to thank you for a fantastic class experience and the guidance and advice you gave during the course. Having you as a teacher was surely a large contributing factor to my success."

"I just wanted to share some great news! I sat for the SHRM-CP exam today, just one day after class finished, and I passed! I couldn’t believe it! Thank you for your instruction in the virtual lectures as they definitely helped me to pass the exam. Thank you again and happy holidays!"
"Just quickly wanted to send you a note thanking you not only for sending us the additional documents but also for being an amazing instructor. I truly enjoyed the two days in your class and felt like I learned a lot you really made the class exciting."
"I wanted to send a big thank you over to you personally. Had I not taken your California employment law course out in San Jose (months ago) I would have never connected with you in reference to the virtual SHRM-CP exam prep course. I successfully passed yesterday and would like to thank you for all of your guidance. I would not have been as successful without taking your course. It is evident you have a genuine passion for HR and true talent for communicating that is visible in your teaching style. I’d love to get recommendations from you on next professional certifications that I should seek out. I recall you mentioning a mini California employment course or something like that which was in the works. I’ll continue to take courses taught by you moving forward!"
-Elizabeth Murphy, Human Resources Manager, JCB North America
"I didn’t get a chance to say it yesterday, but your 2 day presentation on CA Employment law was amazing! To present that much material (each module could have taken several days alone) in such a short amount of time was nothing short of amazing. Your subject matter expertise and real life experience, the attendee participation, and your storytelling style was incredible. The subject matter can be a bit dry, but your style of weaving in material, real life anecdotes really kept everyone engaged while learning a ton of info. Thanks again."
- Larry Piazza, SHRM-SCP
"Thank you Nevada County Chamber for another great half day seminar, “California employment law essentials for business: "update and review”. Michael Letizia, the presenter was able to deliver a great amount of material in a concise and effective manner. The seminar was actually enjoyable and he was very effective in explaining some rather confusing issues in layman terms. His humor was well received and I came out of it with a very good understanding of what I need to do to stay compliant with current labor law. I will definitely continue to attend this seminar each year.
Thank you. "

"I wanted to thank you for presenting this class here at ALLDATA. In all of my years of experience of managing call centers this was one of the most informative training classes that I have ever attended.
You are a wealth of information!"
- Julia Russell, Operations Supervisor, ALLDATA/AutoZone, Inc.
"At the beginning of my career I had the opportunity to work with Mike Letizia. During the 2-3 years we worked together I was not only provided guidance on HR related processes, but Mike really made a point to make sure I understood them and how they related to the issues we encountered in the workplace. Mike really acted more like a mentor; he shared his knowledge and provided positive influence and guidance in several aspects of my career. Very few people have had as much of a positive impact on my professional career as Mike has and it was a great pleasure to have had the chance to work together."
-Chris Minium, Regional Team Lead, CompuCom Systems Inc
"I would not be where I'm at today, personally or professionally, without the mentorship you have given me!."
- Yolanda Maldonado, HR Generalist
"It is not often you find a person with multi-dimensional talent but Mike Letizia is that person! Mike excels in all areas of his life, personal, career and volunteer roles. No matter what the role is he gives it 250%. Additionally, Mike has a true talent for developing people. He is a true Human Resources Professional that has an apparent passion for what he does. Another aspect of his talents includes his ability to handle operational detail and analysis. He can zero in on a problem and almost immediately create a solution.
I have had the honor of working on the executive board for the San Joaquin Human Resources Association with Mike for many years now and I can honestly say he is my go to person. It may seem like the simplest thing or the most complex and he always has the answer for me. I manage and employment agency and my clients often turn to me with HR inquiries and if I don’t have the answer the first call I make is to Mike. I would recommend him to any business looking for a true professional to represent their organization.."
