CIIPM online training - Core Patent Search Skills (May 2022)

Core Patent Search Skills (CPSS) covers the essential knowledge and skills needed for successful patent searching.

Join us to acquire some essential subject search skills. On this online training course, attendees will:

  • find out about patent families
  • learn more about patent publications including the importance of dates and numbers in patent information
  • discover how to approach organisation name and inventor name searches.

CIIPM teaches the background and theory of using IPC and CPC patent classifications for search, and how to use forward and backward patent citations to find relevant documents. We introduce iterative search techniques to broaden and narrow your search results.

The course is best for those with less than two years' patent search experience, those who only search patents occasionally and/or who want to increase their knowledge of patent information and update search skills. It is suitable for Intellectual Property managers and those working in R&D, technology transfer, strategic business development and competitive intelligence roles.

The course will be delivered as two one & a half hour sessions on two consecutive days (3 hours in total). Please note: online training sessions may be recorded.

Cost: £190 + VAT for both sessions, course manual and certificate of attendance.
