You know, sometimes it is not a bad idea to try to find out for yourself before posting questions...
this tells you everything about it: http://www.ecfmg.org/certification/h...ess-works.html

Now once you have the USMLE ID number, the next step is the "application for ECFMG certification". You can apply for ECFMG certification online using IWA (https://secure2.ecfmg.org/emain.asp?app=iwa). It costs 60 USD.
Then, you can apply for the exam you want to take!

Also, here are some links you should definitely read:
The Complete Guide to ECFMG Forms

It does take some time to get familiar with all these terms... So do spend some time on that.
Step1 [ ], Step 2CK [ ], Step 2 CS [Pass first attempt], Step 3 [ ]
