Description

The tutored e-learning course addresses in detail the CPC scheme and definitions in specific selected technical fields with a view to classification in these fields. A progressive approach is proposed from the overall view to the deepest level.

The course is proposed in the flipped format: presentations are made available ahead of the online session for self-study by the participants who will be given the opportunity to classify concrete examples.

The training will be given in these technical fields:

H01M, C08G, G05B, G01N1, A61N1, B01L3, G16H, H04N21.

During the online session, EPO examiners will summarise the content of the presentations and provide feedback on the classification examples.

The overall time investment for this seminar is estimated for each participant as follows:
- 4 hours for self-studying the presentations 
- 2 online sessions of 2 hours pro field

Format

- Tutored e-learning course
- Course length: 8 hrs

Learning objectives

On completion of the course, participants will
- understand the latest CPC developments in the selected technical fields
- have a better control on using CPC for classifying in these fields

Requirements

Participants have at least two years of experience in using CPC as classifiers and have completed the self-paced e-learning learning courses on CPC:

- Using the CPC in classification
