Learn online how examiners approach After Final Practice

Would you like a briefing on recent examination practice and procedure guidance for after final practice? Attend an interactive virtual instructor led training (vILT) featuring materials delivered to experienced USPTO examiners. Class size is limited, so register early for this free opportunity.

The USPTO is applying for one hour of CLE credit in Virginia for this course.

This training features detailed hypothetical examples to provide a refresher on best practices for an examiner’s response to arguments and claim amendments after a final rejection.  Additional details about examiner implementation of the After Final Consideration Pilot 2.0 (AFCP 2.0) will also be discussed.


For questions about this course, please email vILT@USPTO.gov.
