This comprehensive program is both an academic learning process and a hands-on practical exposure to technical analysis. It is designed to provide a foundation for professional users of technical analysis. The course also serves to prepare students for the Level 1 of the Chartered Market Technicians (CMT) exam, which is a professional accreditation developed by the Market Technicians Association (MTA) for Technical Analysts. A fair amount of material can also be used for the Level 2 exam. Generally, the course is given over two days.
