Over the years many companies have introduced training programs and certifications that were little
more than a sales pitch. At the same time there is a large number of Assistants and Digital techs
working with Phase One products everyday. There is a strong connection between the impression
customers have of Phase One products and their experiences using them. Therefore, if we can train
these Assistants and Techs to better use and support Phase One products then we will have a
happier and more successful user base.
This program is designed to teach assistants and digital techs the skills they need to get the most
out of Phase One equipment and software. We believe this presents an excellent opportunity to
drive sales by creating an educated client, dedicated brand ambassadors, and a stronger presence
within the industry.
