The Global Intellectual Property Academy (GIPA) provides intellectual property training in a variety of different topics primarily that focus on enforcement, patents, trademarks, and copyrights. GIPA programs are run on a fiscal calendar from October to September and are conducted around the world. The participants in each of the GIPA classes must be officials of intellectual property offices of their respective governments, or of the agencies of their governments that are responsible for enforcement, patent, trademark, or copyright policies.

GIPA also offers free intellectual property training in an online, e-learning format in five languages. These e-learning modules cover all areas of intellectual property protection which include patents, copyrights, trademarks, geographical indications, enforcement and trade.
