Successful completion of all required courses
The practicum phase, or internship, consists of 540 clocked hours (maximum 15 hours per week) of classroom work under the MTTI/NJ-approved supervision of an AMS or MACTE Early Childhood certified Head Teacher. The Practicum phase may be self-directed if the student's formal request is approved by MTTI/NJ and the student pays an additional fee. Once both the academic and practicum phases have been successfully completed, the student will be eligible for the Montessori Early Childhood Certificate from the American Montessori Society.
