    As per fide arbiter norm requirements, successfully completing the fide arbiters seminar and exam equals one norm. To get the fide arbiter title, an applicant still needs to obtain three other fide arbiter norms.

    If there is a decent exam involved then I think they could be a good idea. But I do wonder how many people are they going to fail. Will the pass mark really be that high that quite a few fail.

    It is one of the main issues in relation to tournament arbiting about how much do arbiters really know about the laws of chess since they are never tested on them.

    But then you need a decent examiner.

    FIDE arbiter title

    If you want to become a FIDE arbiter you have to attend one of these seminars and pass the exam. Melbourne is the most cost effective place for Australian wannabees to get the required norm. The next best place is probably Moscow. An entry fee will be worked out once we get a clear idea what our costs will be.

    Or Sydney! Good luck with the seminar.
    No this is silly, the whole premise is silly and very badly written. I'm the senior officer here and I've not had a funny line yet so I'm stopping it.

    Garvin according to what is written in the Regulations for the Titles of Arbiters, http://www.fide.com/component/handbo...&view=category the pass mark is 80%.

    I'd encourage everyone who may be called upon to be an arbiter to attend this seminar. It is rare to have such a seminar near you. Plus having an exam norm is compulsory before being able to earn the FA title.

    Having attended such a seminar by IA Panagiotis Nikolopoulos in Greece during World Youth Chess Championships 2010, the experience is certainly worth it.

    Word of warning, the exam is hard and you need to score at least 80% to pass (only around half the candidates pass!). Even then, the pass mark was reckoned to be too easy, because it means we can get 1 out of 5 decisions wrong. Just imagine the trouble an arbiter would get into with such a mistake rate...

    If you already have FA norms, make sure you obtain the exam norm and get the FA title before they expire!!
