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 Master Class is a single-day distillation of our 4-day Iasa Business Technology Strategy certification course. It is an intensive introduction to Business Technology Strategy, but as far as preparing participants to pass certification exams, it would come up short since, due to time constraints, certain topics must be discussed in passing or foregone (such as frameworks and methodologies, Stakeholder Communication Strategy, and Engagement Model). There is no certification awarded for this Master Class.
