The training center is an affiliate of National Institute of Montessori Education (Abbr. NIME), which is the only association accredited by National Institute of Vocational Education, Beijing Normal University to provide Chinese Montessori certificates.
As the predecessor of the training center, the International Montessori Teaching Institute (IMTI) provided high quality Montessori training with features of Chinese culture to build a high-end Montessori educational brand which suits Chinese educators.
As the foundation and a crucial part of the training center, IMTI is a sister organization of the International Montessori School of Beijing (MSB), which also belongs to Wisdom International Education Group (WIEG). Committed to Montessori teacher training, IMTI is among the first few certification authorities who were accredited by the Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE) and the American Montessori Society (AMS).
The instructors of the center are highly qualified Montessori trainers at home and abroad with plentiful experience. And the series of handbooks (7 in total) were written and edited by Sharon Keenan, who was the former educational principle of the International Montessori School of Beijing (MSB) and has over 40 years’ Montessori educational experience. Besides these advantages, bilingual simultaneous translation is also the strength of the training center.
