Norms and titles

How do players achieve norms and titles at ficgs? What tournaments do players have to compete in to get norms and titles at ficgs?

My guess is that you can only achieve norms in the class M, SM, GM and rapid M tournaments. Once the tournament starts you know the number of points you have to win to get a norm.

There is certainly a formula for calculating the number of points you have to win in order to get a certain norm.

.. true, the formula should be fully explained too.

Perhaps you could also explain what a "norm" is, for chess newbies.

formula on here for norms

Yeah, it was the formula etc that I was after. I had already seen the information in the link before I asked the question
