The goal of this project was to improve technical training within TC2100 of the USPTO. This goal was achieved by creating curriculums for three key fields. Each curriculum is presented as a flowchart with subject areas linked by prerequisites. Topics are listed with links to automated, on-demand, and inexpensive references and tutorials for each subject area. In doing this, a method and system was developed to organize training materials in an intuitive manner. Improved training should lead to a reduction in the patent backlog, an improved patent examination process, and reduced on the patent examiners.
