Communication Still waiting for ID!

Hey all

I applied for an ecfmg ID about one week ago . In the application, it was said that it would take 5 working days, today, it is the end of the 6th work day and still no ID is sent to my email, so what do I do? should I contact ECFMG again? and how can I contact them?
or should I be patient and wait further?

I cannot believe my very first step in ECFMG certification is not going well!

Smile Wait another two days

Check you email "junk" folder. It might have gone there.

If you are 100% sure it's not there, then I suggest you wait another two days and then call them.

Remember last Monday July 5th was a holiday (in compensation for July 4th) so you may have overestimated the waiting by one day.
