FIDE Trainers’ Commission (TRG) Titles

Date: 24.03.2011
Attention: FIDE Affiliated Federations
Subject: Trainers Titles Licence Fees

Dear Mr. President,

Following my 15.12.2010 letter concerning the FIDE Trainers’ Licences, I would like to draw your attention to the expansion of the payment’s dead-line which is now by 30.04.2011.

After this date we will issue a Trainer’s Card for all your official trainers, which will be valid for the years 2011-2014 (for those who will renew their licences) and for those who do not feel like renewing their licences, an expired (till 2010) card will be issued. After the above mentioned dead-line an extra charge of 15 euros for each expired card will be added to the initial amount of each trainer’s licence fee.

The title licence will be valid 01.01.2011-31.12.2014 (after payment). It should be paid by 30.04.2011, to the FIDE Trainers Bank Account (payment should be net of all bank charges):

Account Name FIDE Trainers Account
Bank UBS Bank
Bank Account 243-342087.61W
Holders Federation Internationale Des Echecs
IBAN CH76 0024 3243 3420 8761W
Swift Code UBSWCHZH80A
Bank Address Case Postale, 1002 Lausanne, Switzerland

The described financial obligation can be paid by the affiliated federation in total or individually by the FIDE trainer. In any case, after the bank deposit, an e-mail should be sent to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , indicating the depositor’s full name and the transaction number. It must be clear that by failing to fulfil this financial obligation the trainer will be suspended automatically from the official FIDE trainers’ list.

Please note that we will need a portrait photo (see sample below) to be sent by e-mail (with the FIDE-ID on the title) in order to issue the trainer’s badge ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ). All badges will be sent to the affiliated federation, after the completion of payment. There will be a charge of 15 euros to issue a duplicate if the original is lost.

With kind regards,
Ignatius Leong
FIDE General Secretary
