What is the status of the Medidata Payments Study Administrator certification?

Effective immediately, we have retired the Medidata Payments Certified Study Administrator certification program. This retirement was not taken lightly and was due to conversations with the Professional Services’ Product Adoption and Optimization team, the similarities between the Study Administrator certification and the Study Builder certification, and a review of the current interest in the certification. 

Please keep in mind that the Medidata Payment Certifications in this post are based on Classic Payments within CTMS.
