I went through the STEPP training and thought it was really excellent:
If you are a patent attorney or agent, it helps to think like an examiner. Sunday, November 10, 2019 is the last day to sign up for the January Stakeholder Training on Examination Practice and Procedure (STEPP) agent/attorney course. This three-day course takes place on January 28-30, 2020 at the Miami Beach Regional Library in Miami, Florida.
The training is limited to those who have passed the patent bar, since it will make use of statutes, rules, and guidelines relevant to practicing before the USPTO. Priority will be given to those who have recently passed the patent bar. USPTO trainers lead the course, which is based on material developed for training USPTO employees.
We are applying for CLE credit in Florida for this course.
Use the STEPP sign-up form to register.
You can learn more about the program and upcoming sessions on the STEPP page of the USPTO website.
