What is POCP?
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.
How to get certified?
There are two steps:
1. Qualification. Take the online prerequisite course and pass all sections.
2. Live training. Attend an official Phase One Certification Training course and pass the written exam at the end.
Why get certified?
POCP is about two things – Education and certification. The certification is to provide proof that a digital tech or digital operator possesses a certain set of skills and knowledge. However, even without the professional certificate the knowledge gained from the course will help make you a better tech, a better assistant and a better photographer.
A full range of topics covering both Phase One hardware and software is covered, including:
Capture One workflow, optimization and troubleshooting.
Tethering hardware and troubleshooting.
The Phase One XF camera system.
Technical Cameras with Phase One backs.
Image quality optimization.
Workflow and technique is taught with an emphasis on high volume commercial situations.
What is the purpose of the pre-course?
Before you attend the certification training seminar you must first qualify by completing the 5 sections of our online Pre-Course. This online portion of training covers the basics of digital back technology, camera usage, and Capture One Workflow to ensure that you come to the live training ready to go to the next level.
Certification is valid for 2 years. After 2 years in a typical development cycle, the course will have changed enough to warrant re-certification.
When certification expires, your name will be removed from the Phase One website. To renew your certification attend a new certification class.
Each final exam consists of 30 multiple choice questions randomly selected from a larger question bank. All questions are specifically developed to reflect the type of knowledge expected of a Certified Professional. The exam is conducted online and students have 3 days to take the exam following the training event. Once you begin the exam you have 35 minutes to complete it (45 minutes for non-native english speaking countries). A passing grade is 80% (24/30).
