The FIDE Senior Trainer title is only awarded through direct application with the endorsement of his or her respective Federation.

All applications will be reviewed and voted on by the Trainers’ Commission Council with a 75 percent agreement required for endorsement and submission to PB/EB/GA approval.

Should an application be rejected, the Trainers’ Commission Council may decide to award a lower title i.e. FIDE Trainer or FIDE Instructor and so will be charged that title fee (inclusive of a two year licence).
