1.       INTRODUCTION 

The Singapore Chess Federation (SCF) is introducing a Trainer Accreditation Scheme to enable schools, players and parents to make informed choices in choosing trainers.  In addition to chess training issues, the Trainer Accreditation Seminar also aims to enhance understanding of tournament rules, Laws of Chess and matters related to competitions. The 1st SCF Trainer Accreditation Seminar held on 23 Dec 2014 was well attended by 28  coaches from various chess schools/clubs, players, parents and teachers.

The SCF strongly recommends that all schools hire SCF accredited trainers for their CCA activities. With effect from 1 January 2015, the SCF will only accept entries for official schools competitions organised by SCF (National Schools Individuals, the National Inter-School Team Championships and other similar scholastic competitions) if one of the following conditions is met:

1.       The Chess Trainer(s) employed / hired by the school is accredited by SCF.
2.       The Teacher(s)-in-charge of the Chess CCA or the team captain has attended and passed a 2-hour SCF  Technical Seminar conducted by SCF (more details will be sent to schools).
