Calendar Time for ecfmg certification ?

hey guys ,
needed some info . my cs is in june and according to the reporting schedule the last reporting date is sept 11.
as we all know the ERAS opens on sept 15th for applications. so do you think i will be ecfmg certified to apply on 15th . my degree and credentials have already been verified by ecfmg .
i know the certificate on paper takes 2 weeks to reach home, but do we get automatically updated in ERAS as certified once a pass CS results are out?

From my experience you get certified in a couple days, so by the time you apply and hospitals download your profile it should be updated in the system. It takes about 1-2 weeks to receive the nice certificate in the mail.
