Employee Training - Key to Success

MicroController Pros' trainers develop and conduct corporate training courses for: technical product trainings; U.S. patent training; and micro controller software and hardware development trainings.

In today's dynamic business environment, continued employee training sets successful companies apart from their competitors.

We offer customization of training programs to meet your specific needs.

  • MicroController Pros wants to help with your specific training demands. Please contact us, we will be happy to listen to your requirements and provide you with a free assessment of your needs.

Training Benefits

  • Increased employee efficiency. Our trainings will enable your employees to accelerate their learning curve to become more efficient quicker.
  • Faster time-to-revenue. Employees, distributors and customers that are well trained on the benefits and usage of your product, will allow you to shorten the design-in or market acceptance cycle of your products.
  • Faster time-to-market. More efficient employees mean faster product development cycles and market introductions of critical new products. Well trained employees make less time-consuming mistakes and use the tools at their disposal more efficiently.

U.S. Patent Training


Course Description

4 hour U.S. Patent Training. This course provides participants with an overview of the US patent filing process, discusses what can be patented and outlines the conditions for obtaining a patent. The process of writing the patent application is covered in detail, including the outline specification, drawing and photograph standards that must be followed in presenting patent claims. The research of "prior art" or related applications is both an essential aspect in determining patentability and a key component of the patent application itself. The training presents resources and methods for conducting a patent search, determining and presenting such prior art.

Course Objective

  • Have a clear understanding of the US patent filing process formalities

  • Understand what can be patented and the conditions of obtaining a patent

  • Be able to conduct a patent search and research prior art to determine

  • Be able to draft a patent application and present claims in accordance
    with the US patent outline specification and drawing/photograph
