Maybe minus a background check or something.
The difference is that the EA credential requires at least three years of applicable experience, including references of all supervisors during the time period, and the FSA has no experience or reference requirement (IIRC).

And yes, there are technically 3 EA exams, but EA-1 is rarely taken, since a combination of other exams (FM and MLC, I believe) will earn you credit for that one either way.
