Preparation for the EQE

Preparation for the European qualifying examination (EQE)

As part of the Euro-CEIPI collaboration with the European Patent Academy, CEIPI offers a complete range of courses preparing for the European qualifying examination 2023. We offer training modules varying in length from one day courses to five-day seminars, organized in a number of different cities in Europe or online. These courses, which all use proprietary high-quality material, take place from September 2022 to February 2023. CEIPI considers itself successful in providing candidates with a set of courses adapted to the EQE, increasing their chances of success. Statistics based on the feedback of successful French speaking candidates show that their chance of success - after following such a program - is in the order of 70 - 80%, i.e. significantly higher than the average success rate.

Our training offer consists of the following courses:

EPO pre-examination:

EPO main examination:

Papers A+B:
Paper C:
Paper D:

Except for the intensive courses, the whole CEIPI training preparing for the EQE 2023 is offered either on-site or online.

Experience has shown that the on-site training format prepares candidates most efficiently for the examination, because it facilitates intense communication between tutors and participants and among the course participants. The CEIPI therefore recommends to give priority to the on-site training format. However, in order to also prepare those candidates for the EQE who cannot attend the on-site training, the CEIPI also organizes the above courses preparing for the EQE 2023 as online training.

The intensive courses which aim at putting candidates under the conditions of the e-EQE are therefore exclusively organized online.

The CEIPI courses preparing for the EQE 2023 are complementary to the ASPI training: the respective course calendars have been fixed in order to enable French speaking candidates to attend both trainings. ASPI and CEIPI propose different mock exam papers in their courses.

The CEIPI offers special attractive “package” prices for candidates simultaneously enrolling for the complete range of courses preparing for one or more papers of the EQE.
