Who should participate?

There are no pre-requisites to enroll in any of the 4 courses. They are primarily intended for trademark assistants, trademark paralegals, and trademark clerks seeking the certification of trademark administrator. The courses will also be of interest to individuals wishing to acquire knowledge of trademark administration.

What is the program format?

The courses are delivered online and are self-paced. The study materials include quizzes (Q&A), as well as practice assignments accompanied by model answers. Students will have access to a trademark agent who will answer questions and provide guidance in “Ask the Expert” format.

There is no time limit to complete the courses which are offered on demand.


Once all 4 courses are completed, you may register and sit for the online exam (exam fee is applicable). Once you pass the exam, you may obtain the designation of Certified Canadian Patent Administrator exclusive to IPIC members.



In lieu of an annual continuing education requirement in the early years of our program, to maintain the certified trademark administrator designation you must hold a membership in good standing in the Intellectual Property Institute of Canada (IPIC). By doing so it will ensure you stay informed about our regular stream of IP related education and services.
