TRG Commission Members and the most active lecturers were first invited to apply (pre-approved).
All remaining lecturers in 2020 were then invited and we will also consider any nominations made by TRG Council members and FIDE Management Board members.
If approved, they will however be required to attend an orientation program to familarise themselves with our teaching curriculum and evaluation system.
We have also invited panelists, experts in subject areas relevant to chess training, and they will also be key resources for our Trainer Professional Education & Development Workshops:
The TRG Council of course still reserves the right, on the recommendation of it’s Chairman, to appointed lecturers as needed on a case to case basis to fulfil our work in specific regions and languages.
