Medidata Academy - Available Certifications

The Medidata Professional Certification Program recognizes clinical researchers for their role-based skills in the Medidata Clinical Cloud. The program builds on Medidata Academy's training program by adding a formal certification process, and is available to Medidata clients (both employees and site staff), Medidata Services Partners and Medidata employees.

Upon successful completion of a certification, you receive a personalized digital certificate and card and are invited to use the Medidata Certified Professional logo in your business communications. Certifications are portable, so you keep your credentials as you advance within your organization or across the industry. Sponsors and contract research organizations benefit from a growing network of professionals who have been trained to apply best practices using the Medidata platform. Learn about our available certifications and get started by contacting your Medidata project manager or email certification@mdsol.com.

*TIP: Looking for verification of your completed training or certification? It's simple! You can download certificates of completion within your user profile in the Medidata Clinical Cloud.

GO FURTHER WITH MEDIDATA CERTIFICATION

To pursue a certification, please review the requirements below and then contact your Medidata project manager or send an email to certification@mdsol.com. If you are a site user—Principal Investigator (PI) or Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC)—please contact your sponsor organization and let them know you are interested in certification. Note that certifications do not expire, but each is datestamped, and the date of certification determines the product version to which it is applicable. As new product versions or updates are introduced, Medidata updates the certification requirements and exam to reflect current product functionality. Requirements for an updated track are announced before any current track is retired.  Professionals are encouraged to keep skills and certifications up to date.
