The course listing for the SCAA 2013 event states that CB206 Coffee Market Strategies "counts for RG certification." However, I don't see the course listed in any of the requirements for either Level 1 or Level 2 RG certification.

The only place where I can see it being a substitute course is under Level 2, "Complete 4 of the following courses:" section:

RP 301 Advanced Green Coffee Processing
CP 205 Purchase Finance and Green Coffee Contracts: Uses and Terms
GE 206 Grinding and Particle Size analysis
RP 237 Packaging
GE 217 Coffee Lab Equipment Use, Calibration and Testing
RP 219 Economics on a Coffee Farm: the cost of quality
RP 220 Basics of Organic Farming
CP 201 Grind Dose Tamp Extract OR CP 225 Espresso Blending (J25)

Also, just as a public service announcement, I strongly suggest that anyone pursuing certification go back and check the pre-requisites from time to time since some courses appear to be discontinued and others substituted in their place. I had no idea that I've had all the requirements for level one for some time now. Who knows, you might be pleasantly surprised!
