You Can Always Give Back


Chess Trainer Professional Continuous Education & Development

Image We are proud of this very important initiative as we at the FIDE Trainers Commission move from just the certification, award and licensing of trainer titles, based on chess alone, to incorporating essential non chess skills such as teaching, and ultimately a universally recognised profession . Like everything else today, chess is also subject to huge, even fundamental changes in how things work and are done, and the move online together with all that entails as necessitated by the current global COVID-19 global pandemic, is for many, a wake up call. In chess, the impact of computers, databases, the Internet and engines, and now AI has been a constant game changer and so we have decided to start of with a series of workshops to help trainers (and players) learn or better learn how to use the tools that are now an essential part of the game.
