Shooting with the Phase One became a pleasure , but was this it ? There is yet so much to learn about this camera, so I started to look for additional training. The Phase One Certified Professional training seemed a good starting point.
I enrolled in the training which consists of an on-line course prior to the POCP training session in London. One must as pass all the tests with a minimum of 80% before the live training can be attended. Good thing, so is everybody at least at the same level.
On 17 December I took my practical training in the Holborn Studio’s London. A two days intensive training, with lots of theory and practical exercises. Some called it “Death by powerpoint” . At the end of the course a written test. 30 questions and a limited time, with a passing score of 80%. I had a good feeling after the test. The interesting part was that I was the oldest chap (52) in the class and yet I was the first one to complete the test. I really started to wonder ” Did I misunderstood the questions ?”.
The good news came the next day, when Steve from Teamwork UK passed me the message “you passed with 90%”.
What a relief, now I am ready to rock.
