I attended the Masterfit University a couple years back. It was interesting. There was a basic and an advanced course. Three of us from the shop went, including our hardgoods manager who gave the basic course. It was very interesting, and I highly recomend it, as a good introduction to bootfitting. For my buddy and I, it spent quite a bit of time on stuff we were already fairly skilled at, but the foot examination, and boot balancing presentations were quite interesting. Of course, most shops send their people there because they know nothing, and have no one to train them, so the course seems geared to beginners. It was nice to see, that even the Masterfit gurus did not agree on everything (kind of like this site), but the were after the same outcomes.
