I'm sorry but I'm not sure I get it.
can someone clarify what we're supposed to do after we get the certificate, should we scan it & upload it somewhere? should we mention it somewhere?
does ECFMG automatically update the status report that will say ECFMG certified?


bottom line, How would the programs know??
