Montessori Certificate Program
The non-degree Montessori Certificate Program is for students seeking Montessori training without a degree. Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a Chaminade University Montessori Certificate which may be used towards the recommendation of an AMS Montessori Credential at the Early Childhood Level. Eight of the twelve courses are delivered online and the remaining four courses are hybrid, which require attending a fourweek summer intensive on-ground session.
