PCT Boot Camp: Our Foundational Course

This course presumes little or no independent prior Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) knowledge. The course is tailored to create basic knowledge and fundamental ability.

This covers both outbound, for PCT filing requirements for heading outside of the United States, and inbound, National Stage filing, in the United States. Each year, the PCT patent application process streamlines electronically and procedurally. PCT-SAFE is the primary tool covered in this course, but the move is ongoing from this tool to ePCT. As such, this course is an easy way to get started in your PCT practice and couples with ePCT with WIPO Experts to bring cutting edge knowledge within reach.

Upcoming Live Course

LIVE Course Update

We have limited our planning of “live” course locations, and have none to announce at this time. In a typical year, PCT Learning Center hosts at least 4 rounds of a combination of our PCT process course complement around the United States. We seek out attendee/sponsor companies and firms as our “live” location in a selected city, and then enroll students until the locations and courses are full. Most sites accommodate no more than 50-60 live attendees per course. As soon as our “live” course planning resumes, announcements will appear on these pages. Please check back for announcements, and sign up for our monthly PCT Newsletter for updates. When reinstated, the live courses will correspond to the on-line/on-demand course selection in terms of sign, scope, and content.
