THE Fiji Chess Federation will be holding a World Chess Federation (FIDE) Trainers' Seminar on May 6 and 7 in Suva to educate and certify trainers and chess teachers on an international basis.

This is also part of the federation's four-year strategic plan to further enhance the development of the game in the country.

FCF president Doctor Virgilio de Asa said the train-the-trainers seminar would provide basic skills and knowledge to chess instructors particularly school teachers.

However, he said the seminar was open to everyone and would be limited to 30 participants on a first-come-first-serve basis.

"This will be a 15-hour lecture with slides and projections starting at 8am," Dr de Asa said.

"The seminar is co-organised by FIDE, the Asian Chess Federation and FIDE Trainers Commission and the Fiji Chess Federation."

Dr de Asa said three categories of FIDE Trainer Titles Diploma namely FIDE Instructor, National Instructor and Developmental Instructor would be awarded to successful participants.

"Each participant will receive participation certificate. The course will be conducted by FIDE Master and FIDE Instructor Geoffrey Borg who is also the CEO of FIDE."

Dr de Asa also confirmed the FIDE fee was being waived as this was a development seminar.

He said all refreshments, snacks and lunch would be provided at no cost to participants.

Interested chess enthusiasts and school teachers can register online via virgilio_de_asa@hotmail.com or phone 3314450 (8am-1pm).

The two-day seminar will be held at the Lali Room, Holiday Inn.
