On the last day of the training the participants took an exam by filling a questionnaire composed of two parts. The first part referred to chess tasks and the second part was aimed at checking the teachers’ psycho-pedagogical and pedagogical qualities.
The specialists were graded by the scale of 20 points. As a result, current and future teachers received 1, 2 or 3 year’s validity certificates depending on the results.
