Hello Denis,

How does a person from Australia meet this requirement, without travelling half way around the world?

Hello Garvin

At present it's very hard. Last year FIDE gave some titles without examination and several Australians took advantage of that. But there are other things to watch for too. The Titles are not permanent and have to be renewed every 4 years. Moreover the FIDE fees for the original title and for the renewals are pretty steep. I think that there are plans to set up seminar centres in New York and Singapore and some seminars are already held in Singapore. Had the Right Move won the FIDE elections they might have implemented their promise to set up a training centre in Australia but that's another story. The ACF has not yet examined the aspect of nationally registered courses. There's always the problem of suitably qualified and available seminar instructors to start with. FIDE sets quite high standards. For example, a Senior Instructor is normally a GM. Ian Rogers is our only Senior Instructor.
