What is the Calman Academy?
The Calman Academy is an essential part of Portrait Displays’ turn-key solution to deliver professional grade calibration to living rooms across the globe. Store employees are transformed into Calman Certified Calibration Specialists in a matter of days, gaining the ability to perform both manual and automated (AutoCal) calibrations using Calman color calibration software.
The program has seen excellent results – even in its most early days – across the globe. To date, nearly 5,000 employees from 3,000+ stores around the world have been certified as Calman Certified Calibration Specialists.
Hands-On, Technical Curriculums
Training is a crucial part of successfully implementing Calibration as a Service (CaaS). As a part of the Calman Academy, the CaaS training program ensures that your staff gets hands-on experience and acquires the technical know-how to support customers in their decisions while providing the ultimate lens-to-living room experience that can be demonstrated in-store.
Training is conducted over the course of 5 days within small, concentrated groups of 8-14 students. Subject matter includes, but is not limited to, color standards (HD, 4K, 8K, HDR), calibration processes, and sales and marketing strategies. By the end of course, Calman Academy trainees will have converted their practical knowledge to skills that can immediately generate revenue – with a certificate of completion to prove it!
