It hasn’t been much long, when I started my career in project management.
And on the very first week a senior colleague suggested me to pursue PMP.
I considered it, read eligibility criteria and other related stuff but didn’t put much of an effort into it.
After that, couple of years later I finally took a step and signed up for a 3 days – 35 PDUs classroom program, hosted by Ms. Kavita sharma.
I set a target of one month to take the test but failed due to lack of confidence.
I moved to Vadodara on a project in end of March, and I met Mr Mahesh Panchal who introduced me to this whatsapp group ” winningPMPlan” moderated by Vidhi Raj and Mr Vidyesh Alve.
Vidhi added me to the group and that was the time I started gaining confidence and was able to set goals, prioritise study sections and clear my doubts.
In first week of April, I scheduled my exam on for 2nd May 2017.
For 1 month, I indulged in all the exercises and questions presented in “WinningPMPlan” WhatsApp group along with PMBOK® studies.
When the exam date was close and I started panicking, some of the group members (Vinisha, Arun and Shubham), personally called me and boosted my moral and confidence with positive words and facts.
On 2nd of May, I appeared for the exam, cleared it and thanked everyone.
And I am still available in that WhatsApp group to help other aspirants just like they all helped me.
