Certificate granted:
Assistant Certificate

The Montessori Training Centre of British Columbia (MTCBC)  works in affiliation with the Association Montessori Internationale.  The courses offered must meet rigorous standards, in both content and teaching staff.  The Certificate awarded by the MTCBC is in great demand by Montessori Schools both nationally and internationally for the position of Assistant to the Montessori Guide.  Individuals must enquire what local requirements set out by government regulatory bodies must also be met when applying for Assistant positions.

Due to popular demand, we are adding another Assistants Course!
