About PCT Learning Center
A Place to Become an International IP Expert
Although PCT is, by now, more than 50 years old, the number of annual filings from across the globe has only just stretched beyond 250K. Our founder, Gary Smith, former Director of PCT Operations at the WIPO, was determined to make Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) knowledge more widespread and accessible. Beginning with “live” seminars to small groups, PCT Learning Center is now online and on-demand across the web and expanding our course offerings to cover ALL aspects of International IP Practice.
