    After attending, I haven’t gotten anything else about it. I want to sign up before the 30th, but it seems to be a scam or something.

    I even reached out to a Medallia employee, and I’m not sure the disconnect.

    They wrote, ” Thanks for letting me know! We are in the process of developing a new certification/training and no longer have the previous one available. I already reached out to the person who manages this program for an update for you, and will keep you posted!
