It’s also recommended as a prerequisite for the second course developed by CaLP and IRC.

"A Practical Guide to Market Analysis" is aimed for humanitarians workers with an understanding of market assessments. After completing the course participants will have gained a solid understanding of the theory and steps of market assessments.Learners will be guided through the common steps within market assessments, using a fictional emergency scenario as a basis. This course is relevant to most types of emergency market assessment, including EMMA, RAM, MAG, the 48-Hour Tool, the WFP VAM and PCMA.

These courses can be accessed in disaster ready here.
