It is designed to prepare students for the Level 1 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 evening course is given over a series of a few evenings. There is an optional workshop, depending upon enrollment.

Unlike other summary technical courses that just show technical principles, candidates will be taught to use the material learned and attempt to create profitable investing and trading strategies. They will also be exposed to academic research that may support of refute some technical approaches. Current market situations that students may experience in their work or personal experience in the bond, commodity, currency, equity, futures and options markets will be discussed in class. Sample problems from past actual market charts will also be discussed, and recommended readings from leading textbooks will be listed for each section. Supplementary articles from business publications and academic journals will also be provided. Students will be provided with one of the textbooks required for the exam.

Guiding students will be the 25 years' experience of John Palicka, CFA CMT, who has managed billions of dollars with a top record by incorporating technical strategies with fundamentals. He will share some of the typical challenges and solutions experienced with various technical strategies in his funds and by his many students and client consultations.
