Course Descriptions
BOMA Class Series

Observations are made daily of the biomarkers of cervical mucus and vaginal sensations that women experience at the vulva. The sensation and the visual aspects of cervical mucus are recorded daily by using a Billings Method chart and either stamps or symbols. Couples are given two charts, a booklet and a packet of stamps in addition to viewing the instructor's PowerPoint presentation.

There are 4 rules to this method and no temperature taking. Group instruction is offered for the first two classes. Individual follow-ups are then scheduled for at least two more sessions or until the clients are autonomous in their use of the method.


CCL Sympto-Thermal
Please note that selecting this class series will take you to the Couple to Couple League International website for class selection of Phoenix area Sympto-Thermal Class Series. Before selecting this class series, please make a note of each class date, as the CCL site will only list 3 of the classes. In the Diocese of Phoenix, the 4th meeting is a requirement for marriage prep certification and at that last meeting the chart review and evaluations are completed and certificates are then presented to couples. This class series teaches the Sympto-thermal method of NFP and includes:
  • A minimum of 3 "learner centered" classes, approximately 2 1/2- 3 hours long, taught by certified instructors including private consultations.
  • Class materials needed for the practice of the Sympto-thermal method.
  • Private follow-up appointments after classes 2 and 3 and 1 month following class 3.
  • At this last session the Certificate of Completion for marriage preparation will be given to the couple after chart review and couple evaluations are all completed.

Creighton Model NFP

Like all NFP methods, the Creighton Model System (or CrMS) relies upon the observation and charting of biological markers that are essential to a woman's health and fertility. These "biomarkers" tell the couple when they are naturally fertile and infertile, allowing the couple to use the system either to achieve or to space a pregnancy.

Since these biomarkers also telegraph abnormalities in a woman's health, it can also be used to network with gynecologic and procreative healthcare professionals. The teachers of the CrMS are trained to assist and refer clients to specifically trained physicians who have been educated to incorporate the CrMS into their medical practice.

The Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System (CrMS) is a standardized modification of the Billings Ovulation Method. Like all other NFP methods, it is built on research, education, and service and is an integrated educational system designed to assure the highest quality service possible for the educator and client couple.

The full series of Creighton classes begins with a 2 hour group session which articulates on how this method fits in with Catholic teachings on married sexuality. It also covers the scientific basis of all NFP methods and how to observe and chart the signs specific to this method. After the first group session, the remaining meetings or "follow-ups" with the instructor and client couple are hour long private sessions scheduled at 2, 4, 6, 8, and 12 weeks. More sessions are available, if needed, at $30 each, and can be scheduled by emailing or calling the Office of NFP or your CrMs Instructor.

Session One, 5 follow up sessions, and course materials are included for the tuition cost of $150 per client or client couple.
