Our online EPAC course

European Patent
Administration Certification (EPAC)

We offer a comprehensive course tailored to candidates preparing for EPAC 2024, covering the EPAC syllabus. This course is specifically designed for paralegals, patent administrators, and formalities officers with at least a couple of years of experience.

DeltaPatents has a longstanding tradition of providing similar courses to candidates preparing for the national formalities exam in the Netherlands. These courses encompass the EPC and PCT with essentially the same scope. Over the years, we’ve successfully offered courses to prepare for EPAC 2022 and 2023. Leveraging insights from our EPAC courses and examinations in the last two years, we’ve adapted our curriculum to cater to EPAC 2024.

A detailed brochure of our online Training for EPAC course is available here.

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.
