Hi Leslie! I haven't heard about an associate program but historically it takes Marketo quite a bit of time to launch something like this and their timelines are usually off. I'd encourage you to work towards general certification as it will help you with the associate program if it does launch and if it takes longer, you can just go for regular certification.
The Marketo EDU team is working on an MCA or Associate level Marketo Certification. Last I heard from them it is due out later this year. I'm looking forward to it as I think it will be a great place for new Marketo Users to start and it's also a good option for users who are not Admins. The only challenge with the MCE is that you have to have Admin access and/or knowledge to pass those components of the more advanced test. The MUG Leaders will post when the new certification becomes available, which (fingers crossed) should be soon!!
