    Re: 12 ECE units
    may

    I took my AMI training in Minnesota, they did not have an equivalent ECE
    credit for that. As for Loyola they only credit it I think when you
    apply during the time you are training. I live in California and here
    they still need 12 specific ECE units to be able to be cleared with
    Social Services. It you take them at a local community college it's
    interesting to find out the difference between Montessori and other schools.
