Master Class – Mastering Information Architecture

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.
