Did you pass the exam? If not, then you cannot become an associate. You can however become a Candidate.
@dcontesti is correct.
You can become a Candidate right now, then take the SSCP exam and if you do not have the required years of experience you will have an Associate SSCP status until you achieve the required years of experience.
Is SSCP Coursera course free?
