January 13, 2019, is the last day to sign up for the USPTO’s STEPP Agent/Attorney 3-Day Course on March 5-7. This course will be held at the USPTO Rocky Mountain Regional Office in Denver.

The Office offers this course to members of the public as part of their Stakeholder Training on Examination Practice and Procedure (STEPP) program. This training is limited to those who have recently passed the patent bar for practicing before the USPTO. Priority will be given to those who have most recently passed the patent bar.

The course is led by USPTO trainers and is based on material developed for training patent examiners and other employees. More information, and a proposed upcoming course schedule, is available on the USPTO STEPP page.
