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 3-day Enterprise Governance Framework & Architecture with COBIT® 5 Foundation Certified certification course. It is a vigorous introduction to COBIT® 5 but inadequate for passing certification exams because, due to time constraint, certain topics either have to be discussed cursorily or excluded altogether (such as Cascade Information goals and RACI chart). There is no certification awarded for this Master Class.
