Intellectual property training course: IP Master Class

Updated 15 December 2016

1. Why learn with us?

IPO Master Class

Learn about intellectual property from the Intellectual Property Office experts who register and grant trade marks, designs and patents, and advise government on copyright issues. 98% of past delegates said they had a better understanding of IP after attending the training course.

The 2.5 day classroom based course will enable you to develop a detailed understanding of all aspects of IP and its relationship with business, culture and the economy. You will also develop sound practical skills you can apply to a business environment.

You will learn about:

  • protecting and defending your own IP – at home and abroad
  • searching trade mark, design and patent registers
  • the role of the IP attorney and when to seek professional advice
  • understanding other people’s IP and how to avoid trouble

For a full breakdown of topics covered on the course see the IP Master Class agenda.

2. Who is this course for?

Business owners, inventors, product designers, business advisors, business coaches, accountants, university lecturers, those with the responsibility for managing an IP portfolio – and anyone with an interest in IP!
