Become an AMI Certified Practitioner

Students who have completed the AMI Montessori for Dementia and Ageing Workshop are eligible to be assessed for competency as an AMI Montessori for Dementia and Ageing Certified Practitioner, to develop and implement this innovative intervention for older adults and people with dementia and to serve as a resource for others in your care setting.  

The two-day AMI Montessori for Dementia and Ageing Workshop and certification assessment requirements do not qualify the student to teach or train others in Montessori for Dementia and Ageing.  An AMI Trainer or Auxiliary Trainer certification is required to teach the AMI Montessori for Dementia and Ageing curriculum.  

The Assessment Process includes the following:

  • Complete the two-day AMI Montessori for Dementia and Ageing Workshop 
  • Contact the AMI Trainer who taught your introductory workshop who will provide you with support and requirements for the certification process.
  • Read the suggested reading material. 
  • Complete the case studies requirements.  
  • Write at least a 1,000-word paper discussing lessons learned from participation in the training and your experience of implementing Montessori principles. 
  • Complete a written examination based on the topics covered in the two-day workshop and the suggested reading.
