In 1989 the “International Chess Academy Max Euwe” was joined to the Max Euwe-Centrum, which made it possible to organize training sessions and courses.
In the Netherlands and Belgium chess courses and chess computer courses are organized. They are announced through special brochures, in “Schakend Nederland” and in our newsletter appearing two times per annum.
The chess courses are specifically designed for those who are already somewhat advanced; MEC does not organize beginners’ courses. We distinguish between general chess courses and thematic ones. The playing strength or rating required for these courses ranges from 1400 to 2000. For the students student-books are available containing summaries of the contents and worksheets.
