You have to pay the fees before they send you Form 186.

Did you pay the fees?

No, you can't complete your application and documentation unless you choose an eligibility period.

- Procedure time varies considerably from country to country, college to college, time of the year, individual circumstances, ..etc generally speaking 1 to 6 months.
- You don't need to be in the country of your graduation school, you can send them your papers and you don't need to be physically there.
- You can't get an eligibility period (scheduling permit) before finishing your Form 186 and credentials verification.

The final date is chosen by you when you get your scheduling permit (three months eligibility period). When you get that, you go to Prometric website and choose a date in that period, did I answer your question?

Yes. You have to pay before proceeding with the certification process. (that's a new rule that they rolled out few months ago).

Wink They will be verified

Your credentials will be verified 9 months from now! I know nobody who took more than 6 months to finish the verification process.

So you should be fine and you'll do it.

Come back here to this thread when you get status verified so that our members benefit from your experience with the ECFMG.

Good luck
