This was in 2018 but it had me choose Associate when I scheduled the test through Pearson VUE. When I passed, it automatically went to Associate status.
There are two ways to become an Associate.
First is when you register for the exam, you can choose you want to be an Associate. After a pass, you'll get the "next step" email and log in to your account on our website and pay your $50 AMF to start your first year.
If you didn't choose Associate before testing, then when you get your provisionally passed email to submit your endorsement application, you can select the Associate application instead of Endorsement. The system will submit the application and within minutes you can go online to pay the AMF to complete the process and start your first year.
I hope this helps! If you need any specific help w/your account or application process, please pop an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for the clarification Kaity.
It's been 5 days since my exam. How long does it usually take to get the email from the ISC2? The test is marked as "Passed" on Pearson VUE's website. Do I need to email support? or should I give it some time?
Thanks in advance
