(ISC)² has begun the exciting process of exploring the creation of a new certification. To fill the cybersecurity workforce gap, we need to address the workforce shortage facing the industry, especially among entry- and junior-level positions. A foundational cybersecurity certification will help (ISC)² build a pathway to a rewarding career in cybersecurity for many around the world.

As a pilot program participant, you will help us evaluate the effectiveness of the exam and its ability to accurately assess candidates’ grasp of the subject matter (also called domains) on which the exam is based.
By passing the pilot exam, you will earn full certification at the conclusion of the pilot program.
The entry-level cybersecurity certification will prove to employers you have the foundational knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for an entry- or junior-level cybersecurity role. It will signal your understanding of fundamental security best practices, policies and procedures, as well as your willingness and ability to learn more and grow on the job.

Hello, I have finished the self-paced online study modules. I am lil lost in how to proceed next. I am not sure how to prepare for the exam. Could you please give me any advice what exactly to study and prepare for the exam other the content of the presentations? Is there any practice exams available? Just now I found this online community which I did not know it existed. Thank you for your help.
You should always refer to the objectives on any exam; that is what you are expected to know. There is a practice exam at the end of the self-study course. Also there may be material that you have not seen on the exam. It is my understanding that half of the questions are beta (the organization calls them pre-test) which do not count for or against you. Best wishes.
It looks like they extended the deadline for the pilot period. The ELCC Q&A was updated to the below:
Registration for the pilot exam remains open with appointments currently available until August 26, 2022 (previous close date was May 31).
This would imply that the new 8 - 12 week timeframe is late October or early November. As far as I can tell, there has been no official announcement beyond the update to the Q&A...
Kindof makes you wonder what the point of the recent 1,000 test milestone comment was about. Unless they still intend on delivering the results based on the May 31 close date, while keeping the pilot available for new test takers during the tabulation period.
@Kaity or @AndreaMoore - Could one of you clarify when we can expect to see results, based on the recent update to the Q&A?
