Since you have a valid 186 you do not need to do anything else. Credential verification is not required for extension. You should have your new permit in one week. Although it might take a couple of days more for ecfmg to forward your new eligibility to prometric. Once that's done you can take your new date.

If I helped you hit the thanks button.
