How to Learn the Creighton Model System (CrMS):

Learning the Creighton Model System begins with an introductory session (usually in a small group or individual format) which is an overview of how the system works and it's many benefits. This is followed by a series of essential, individualized follow-up teaching appointments (personal instruction on use of the system and chart review). At each private follow-up, the system is tailor-made to the specific needs of the user. These sessions are recommended five times during the first three months of use and an additional three times over the remainder of a year.

The CrMS is taught by FertilityCare™ Practitioners or FertilityCare™ Practitioner Interns who are trained in a 13-month Allied Health Education Program which is designed to help them meet the various needs of the individual throughout all stages of their reproductive life.

Sympto-Thermal Method (Couple to Couple League)

How to Learn the Sympto-Thermal Method:

Our many years of experience have shown us that the best way to learn the Sympto-Thermal Method is by attending a class series. These classes are taught by professionally trained volunteers who have witnessed the benefits of using the method in their own lives.

A series consists of three classes spaced about one month apart. Supplemental classes for the postpartum and premenopausal transitions-special times which require further instruction-are also offered.

Certified STM Instructors:

Online/virtual classes and a home study course are also offered through CCL. Please follow link below if you are in an area where no local classes are offered.
