Wynter Bryant | Atlanta Social Worker Attended Class: July 2020 Passed Exam: August 2020 What prompted you to pursue certification? I have been in the social work field for 10 years and am now in my sixth year as a school social worker. I want to make a career change, into management within the business supply chain field. A friend of mine who took the EdWell boot camp years ago referred me to the training, and it was flexible and affordable. What was the Boot Camp like? EdWell was with me every step of the way and even allowed me to join some additional exam prep sessions for a refresher before my exam. My exam prep instructor, Asad Haque, was responsive, attentive, and knowledgeable throughout my entire preparation process. Kimberly, my advisor, was awesome and thorough as well. She provided amazing guidance and direction with my PMP application and it was approved on my first submission! She also offered additional study materials. This was all truly an experience to remember and money well spent. Was it a difficult process? I just got my MBA in July as well, and did that mostly online, so I am used to the virtual platform. It was very convenient and accessible. Working hard is something that I am used to: my mom had a brain aneurysm and stroke when I was 16 and I became emancipated and then her legal guardian after that. So my philosophy is `If I don’t do it, it’s not going to get done.’ The supply chain field is all about managing and leading others on projects, and all about getting things done, so this experience was the perfect test. I like seeing things through from start to finish. How did the PMP exam go? I was "above target" in four of the five process groups and "on target" for the other process group. I am elated. I wasn't expecting to pass my first time, and I surely wasn't expecting to pass "above target.” I am not a good test taker, and this was an overwhelming amount of information. I truly attribute my passing score to EdWell's exam prep boot camp and to the wonderful people who helped me to achieve this professional goal. What advice would you have for others considering a job or career shift? EdWell was responsive, understanding, and encouraging. Between doing my job and taking care of my mom, who lives in hospice, I didn’t have time to take the full practice test as I prepared for the exam, so I did a lot of the 30-question tests and a few of the 50-question ones. Anybody else who’s dealing with a lot professionally and personally, if you have drive and do your homework, it’s attainable. The labor paid off and it was truly worth it.
