Master Class – Mastering Information Architecture

If you are unconcerned with attaining certification, and would rather just be familiarised with Information Architecture in day-to-day functions, ATD Solution offers a 1-day Master Class in a classroom setting—it is a high-impact, power-learning introduction to (or refresher of) key Information Architecture concepts.

Master Classes and Online primers are not regularly scheduled training options. Please check the detailed course pages for schedules, or use the notification form above to turn on auto-notification of classes.

Note: This 1-day class is not an adequate preparation for passing the certification exam.


This single-day Master Class covers only the Business Requirement Architecture portion of our 3-day Business IT Architecture Fundamentals (BITAF) certification course. Note: The Master Class that covers the other parts of BITAF is “Mastering the Skill Sets for Successful EA Adoption”. There is no certification awarded for this Master Class.
Unlike Mastering Business Architecture this Master Class is all about the processes of Business Requirements rather than the realization of company vision, mission and strategy through IT adoption or digital transformation.
