Phase One Certified Professional Training – 2 Day – LA

June 11 @ 9:00 am - June 12 @ 5:00 pm

Ticket Registration

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.  

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? 

This program is designed for working digital techs and assistants who are already well versed in digital

workflow. Photographers with high production workflow and strong digital knowledge can benefit

as well.

This program is not for the inexperienced assistant or advanced enthusiast.

Students should know Capture One fairly well.  If they are inexperienced with Capture One, the

class will move too quickly.

The course is approximately 50% Capture One and 50% Medium format camera systems. The curriculum is

based on professional digital tech workflow.
