Programme Synopsis

Accelerate towards success with a better understanding of intellectual property law and how it can be applied to support and drive your business to achieve its business strategies and objectives.

This course consists of three modules (Trade Mark, Patent, and Copyright) and participants may opt to register for all three modules or any combination of modules which have been designed to be delivered in a blended learning approach. This approach imparts great flexibility for learners to learn at your own pace and in your own comfort.

From 9 September 2019, you will be given access to the online modules of your choice and each should take you about 12 hours to complete over a duration of 2 – 3 weeks. Learners can learn and network with others in the online platform via mind maps, case studies, scenario-based animations and peer-to-peer discussion forums. Your course tutors and facilitators will answer your questions and encourage participation from all the learners.

At the end of the 2 – 3 weeks, you will be required to attend a 0.5-day classroom session on 23 September or 27 September, for each module, with the course tutors. Learners have to be familiar with the online content prior to the intense classroom session which will provide opportunities for learners to apply what they have learnt through group work/activities.
