Thank   you  Senthil  and   Gabriel.



Thank you. 

I am very glad to know about free IPR courses. I am doing P.G.Diploma in IPR laws from NLSIU, Bangalore.   I would like to know more about WIPO free courses.  I have gone throught the WIPO Academy website for free courses.  But I have some doubts.  They are

1. Does the WIPO give certificate of course after completion?

2. As I am doing PGDIPRL do I get any additional knowledge and preference in jobs?

3.  Where do I need to go for writing  examination (I am the resident of Hyderabad)?

Hi Uma,

2. International exposure will add value to your profile.

3. It is a online exam.

Dear Navya,

 This patent course will give you good knowledge and information and will also be helpful for Patent Agent Examination. But Like you give IAS exams from history and You studied history in your bachlor degree. Then your bachelor degree with history is helphul for IAS, but it needs sometning more than that to clear IAS with history as a paper. Same applies here for Patent course and Patent Agent Examination.

Any more information is required, please contact:

I have a PG degree in biotechnology & have 2 years of research experience. Now I am working on management side. I want to know the opportunities in IPR sector for freshers. Do i need to clear patent agent exam or a simple course in IPR will do.

S. P. ASHOK (Advocate Bombay High Court 8450920005     20 April 2011

Dear Anand,

You have good opportunities as you have BioTech Degree. IPR Course will not be that much useful as the Patent Agent Examination will be.
