Spring exam: where is my certificate?

So, when booking an exam, I chose the version "without a prior training". I don't own any certificates so far.

However, I prepared and then passed it at a certified facility. Now I struggle to find a link to my well-deserved certificate. Talking to the masterpiece of AI "Virtual Assistant" didn't answer this question, so I'm asking it here. Where is it?

P.S. At mylearning I saw my exam and a status "Passed", but when I went to "Certifications", there was only a message that it will appear once "all requirements met". And what are those?

Are you gonna tell me that in order to get my cert I gonna book "a training" whose costs are never explicitly mentioned, and pass it retrospectively, after I already passed the exam itself?! Is this a missing requirement?

If you then select ‘No VCP certifications’, you get the following steps to become certified…

STEP 1 : (Recommended) Gain experience with Application Modernization, VMware Spring, Spring Boot, Spring Framework
 
STEP 2 : (Required) Attend ONE of the training courses in 2022
 
STEP 3 : (Required) Pass the qualifying exam
 
Note that step 2 and step 3 are ‘required’ steps.

I saw it. Now I passed the certification itself. I passed an exam. Step 3 is completed. That still means I have to go back to step 2 and take an online course for the exam that I passed, right?

And if I do buy a training after I passed an exam, am I able to get my cert then? Or according to this logic, after the training I'm supposed to take an exam again? What is the policy here?

And I probably stated the question wrongly. I chose the version "Having VCP" which lead me to the reservation of an exam without prior training.

You need to meet all the requirements (training and exam), but they can be completed in any order, so take one of the required courses and you’ll get your certification.
