Same proven global classification process

We teach a proven and legally sound classification process that is simple to use and easy to apply. In our 4-day virtual training you will learn a completely new and simple to use method to classify quickly accurately and with total confidence. We also promise a global classification process that you can use anywhere in the world, over and over again to classify virtually any item, product or part.

Same interactive and highly engaging training experience

We have transformed our 2-Day in-person training to a 4 Half-Day virtual training.  Each training session includes hands-on activities, real-life practice exercises, testing and fun. We understand that on-line training and working from home is different.  Unlike any other training program, Masters Method is designed by education professionals to actively engage, prevent burnout and on-line fatigue.

Virtual Training Platform

We utilize Zoom Conferencing software for an intimate and interactive training session, using both video and audio.  Students will utilize Zoom Chat features for immediate questions and Zoom Breakout Rooms for many fun team/group activities.
