Our online EPAC course

European Patent
Administration Certification (EPAC)

​We offer a course covering the EPAC syllabus for candidates that plan to sit EPAC 2023. DeltaPatents has been offering a similar course to candidates preparing for the national formalities exam in the Netherlands, which also covers the EPC and PCT with essentially the same scope, for many years already. We were therefore able to already provide a course to prepare for EPAC 2022, which has now been adapted for EPAC 2023 using the teachings of our EPAC 2022 course and the EPAC 2022 examination. The course is designed for and directed to paralegals, patent administrators and formalities officers, with at least a couple of years of experience.


Training for EPAC

The EPAC Training course consists of a series of 14 half-day online sessions, with interactive presentations and homework by which candidates can further develop their knowledge, understanding and skill. Candidates will need to have sufficient time available to make the homework to benefit optimally from the course. By providing the sessions already in April 2024, participants will have sufficient time to prepare for the exam. By using half-day sessions, the amount of new information per session is kept at a manageable level. By using an online format, participants can take part from all over Europe – or even outside.
