Phase One Certification for Digital Tech's
Feb 26 & 27 @ S1 Studios Toronto

B3K Digital & Phase One in partnership with S1 Studios are running the first Phase One Certified Professional (POCP) program in Canada. Its been a long time coming, but we feel this is an important step to create professional standards for Digital Capture services.
The program is designed for digital technicians, assistants, and photographers. It is important that you already have a good understanding of Capture One and familiarity with professional workflow. The program is NOT for beginners, casual photographers, or enthusiasts. The POCP Certification will become an important standard to work in the industry as a Digital Tech.
