Medidata Rave Study Design and Build Essentials (SDBE) – Data Validations


Clinical Trial Experience and Medidata Rave Study Design and Build Essentials - Data Managers


As a supplement to the Medidata Rave Study Design and Build Essentials - Data Managers course, this instructor-led course focuses on additional functionality in the Architect module. Attendees will learn advanced data validation development skills and techniques for edit checks and derivations. This course also emphasizes the use of the Global Library and Architect Loader utilities to facilitate the reuse of study components.

This course is taught using the latest released version of Classic Rave or Rave EDC. Please confirm the Rave version for instruction when requesting this course (for private sessions only). Starting in 2019, all public sessions are taught using Rave EDC.

One or more assessments are included in each part of this course. Attendees must pass the assessment(s) to obtain credit for the course.

Note: The combination of this Study Design and Build Essentials: Data Validations course along with the pre-requisite (Rave Study Design and Build Essentials - Data Managers) will be accepted as a substitute for the Study Design and Build Essentials course for those seeking certification.

Maximum number of attendees: 15*

Please note that this class is only available to those currently working for a Medidata client. When registering, please enter your work email address.  

*We recommend a maximum of 10 students to allow the trainer to give time to each student individually.
We can allow a maximum of 15 students, however, this is not recommended as the trainer will not have time to be able to concentrate on each individual student.


Recording of Global Education training sessions is strictly prohibited. Any attempts to record training will result in an immediate stoppage of training until recording is terminated.
