Phase One Certified Professional is a comprehensive training course in Phase One Camera Systems, Digital Backs and Capture One Software. It is designed to give digital techs and assistants the knowledge they need to be more efficient on set and attain the highest level of reliability with Phase One technology.
What is the Certification Process?
The certification process involves 2 steps:
1. Qualification. Following registration, attendees will complete the online pre-course which was developed by Phase One and is an essential part of understanding the information taught at the live training.
2. Live training. Attendees will attend the 2 day live training course and take an exam at the end of the second day. Students who pass the certification test at training will be listed on Phase One’s website as a Phase One Certified Professional.
Who Should Enroll in this Course?
Although this program was designed for working digital techs and assistants who are already that are well versed in digital workflow, photographers working with high production workflow and strong digital knowledge will benefit as well. This program is not for the inexperienced assistant or advanced enthusiast. Students should also know Capture One fairly well; if they are inexperienced with Capture One, the class may move too quickly. NOTE: This is not a Capture One dedicated training.
