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.
Each student's work and progress in the course are regularly reviewed by the instructors. Individual conferences are held with the students at the end of the first semester to discuss their likelihood of success in the course and in their future Montessori work. More conferences are held as necessary and/or as requested.
Students may be asked to discontinue their course for medical, psychological, academic, or other cogent reasons. Students are expected to abide by the conditions laid down for taking the course and any arrangements made for their training during it.
