We have now agreed with tutors the dates for our summer 2021 revision courses for the Foundation Certificate (FC) and Final Diploma (FD) 2021 Patent Examination Board (PEB) exams. Leaflet PEB 2021

We are opening booking this week.

There will be an Introduction to FD4 course on 27-28 May and then the main suite of FD courses will be held between 28 June and 30 July (including six FD1 courses, one FD2 course, one FD3 course, four FD4 courses and two FD4 resitter courses). There are two further FD1 courses between 9-17 August. There will then be a final week of courses between 23-27 August, comprising one FD4 course, two FD2 courses and two FD3 courses.

Because of the Covid-19 situation, many of these courses will be held remotely using Zoom (with fees adjusted downwards to remove the accommodation and meals element). But we hope to hold two FD1 courses (on 12-13 and 14-15 July), two FD2 courses (on 25-26 and 26-27 August), two FD3 courses (on 25-26 and 26-27 August) and two FD4 courses (on 5-6 and 14-15 July) in person at the training venue in Milton Keynes, following Covid-19 protocols. (We have six Goodall/Lee FD1 courses this year as there will be an upper limit of 12 on each of these Zoom-based courses, which last 1.5 days each, spread over two days).

For the FC, the courses will be between 25 June and 10 July, with FC5 on 25-26 June, FC4 on 28-29 June, FC1 on 1-2 July, FC3 on 6-7 July, and FC2 on 9-10 July. We plan to hold the FC1 and FC2 courses in person in Milton Keynes and the FC3, FC4 and FC5 courses remotely (using Zoom or MS Teams).
