FIDE Certification of Coaches and Trainers

Current System

Traditionally, chess coaching as a whole is seen to be low profile, which is due in large part to the fact that coaches receive little recognition. However, recent developments have started to reverse the trend, especially after the World Chess Federation (FIDE) formed a Trainer's Committee in 1998 to specially deal with the subject.

The current worldwide system of accreditation and titling was proposed by our Managing Director, Mr Ignatius Leong, in the 2004 FIDE Congress. It received widespread support and was adopted. The system is explained below.

After trainers take courses offered in regional Academies (the current two being based in Berlin and ours in Singapore), they sit for an examination. Based on their performance and other factors such as their experience, they are then awarded various titles.
