The AMI diploma is respected worldwide as a representation of achievement in a teacher-training program of quality, integrity, and authenticity and is earned through successful completion of an intensive training program conducted by an AMI trainer. These dedicated master teachers have participated in a rigorous Training of Trainers Program and possess in-depth knowledge and understanding of Montessori principles and applications. Most are also consultants and lecturers for Montessori events worldwide. The comprehensive training includes educational theory and child developmental psychology, classroom observation, practice teaching, and material preparation. All AMI training courses must meet rigorous standards both in content and teaching staff.
An AMI diploma can lead to a career as a teacher at Montessori private and public schools around the world, a Montessori school administrator or owner, or an AMI consultant or trainer.
Options for undergraduate and graduate credit are available through colleges and universities affiliated with individual AMI training centers.
