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.
