The internationally recognized diploma of the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) is awarded by the Association to graduates of recognized training courses. These courses must meet rigorous standards, both in content and teaching staff. Only those schools whose classes are conducted by AMI diploma holders are eligible for recognition by AMI.
The Advanced Diploma of the Association Montessori Internationale is granted upon satisfactory completion of the course requirements in attendance at lectures, supervised practice sessions, observation and practice teaching; submission of classroom materials and albums; passing marks on written theory and practical examinations, classroom materials and albums, practice teaching, and oral examinations conducted by Examiners of the Association Montessori Internationale.
Students not fulfilling any part of the course are given one year to make up the work. Students failing any part of the examination must retake that part of the examination the following year. The examination may only be taken twice.
